comment R vs Python for data analysis
I will say, though, that if I were working on a trading floor, and the head trader came to me with a csv of option prices and wanted me to fit them with a log-linear distribution and back out the mean and standard deviation, I wouldn't even consider Python. I think it's like three lines of code to do this in R.
