Well, with the advent of GraalVM that already supports Python 
and R , 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.
