      R is a programming language, even if somewhat specialized. Minitab is an application which makes statistical analysis easy. In R, you write code, in Minitab you click around and choose various graphs and stats to be calculated. Sure, Minitab does have some scripting capability, but so does Excel...

      Cost, functionality. There are an amazing amount of packages available to implement different analyses, the amount of support and documentation is incredible. Then the ability to create GUIs using Shiny is great for distribution of your work to colleagues and associates to use.

      As a programming language, R requires difficult setup and in-depth technical knowledge. Even if R has some statistical capabilities, it cannot compare to a dedicated statistical application like minitab.

      RStudio vs Minitab
      pros, cons and recent comments
      RStudio is an integrated development environment for a programming language, not a statistical software package. Therefore, it is a poor replacement for Minitab and is only a feasible alternative for fluent programmers.

      Number Analytics vs Minitab
      pros, cons and recent comments
      For basic statistics like descriptive statistics, ANOVA, T-test, Linear Regression are also available. It is easier to use but the functionalities are limited for professional statistical analysis.

      snam2 I used Minitab for basic statisticcal analysis like t-test, ANOVA test, and regression analysis. The basic statistical analysis results are comparable with those from Number Analytics. For those who start to learn basic statistics would benefit from Number Analytics because it is free for basic statistics. The basic plan is limited to use less than 2M byte data file, but for learning statistics, it would be good enough.

      The higher ranked alternatives are programming languages or environments, which is not what Minitab is.
