Installing MatLab vs Installing R

I retweeted this a few days ago: 1. Open MATLAB for first time in a few years after using #rstats. 2. Site license doesn’t work right. 3. F*** MATLAB, I’ll try to do it in R And as I have started the process of installing MatLab on my own machine because I want to translate a published MatLab package into R, I am reminded of how painful the process can be.
