Well, with the advent of GraalVM that already supports Python [1] 
and R [2], it will be much harder for Nim to convince Python 
users and data miners who use R to make the switch. If you have 
one VM that is polyglot you can combine all the widely used 
tools, e.g. Java/Kotlin for server/backend, desktop and (maybe) 
apps, Python and R for stats.
