Why is Julia not popular?

The negatives that Julia users report are that it’s too slow to generate a first plot and has slow compile times. Also, there are complaints that packages aren’t mature enough – a key differentiator to the Python ecosystem – and that developers can’t generate self-contained binaries or libraries.

Is R losing to Python?

R can also be used within data science notebooks like Jupyter, but Python is the default mode. DataCamp’s Theuwissen says the Python ecosystem is outgrowing the R ecosystem. Since Microsoft acquired Revolution Analytics in 2015, the number of data science and analytic software vendors focusing on R has shrunk.

Does Julia replace Python?
