IMO we should draw a line between attracting users into a detrimental
experience for them and making Emacs more approachable.  Rstudio is a
_great_ fundamental project, and if the rest of my life wasn’t inside
Emacs, I’d be using it these days as I’m studying R.  Org mode is better
than Rmarkdown in certain respects, but if it’s just ‘do statistics in a
nice environment’, I’d definitely recommend Rstudio over Emacs (or
anything else, for that matter).  There’s no way Emacs will ever be as
good at that particular task set, especially if that’s the only task set
one will need it for.
