Why exactly should I adopt R? I meant there are other languages as well, why just R?

R Programming is the best mechanism for statistics, data analysis, and machine learning. It is more than a statistical package; it’s a programming language so that you can create your objects, functions, and packages.

Like all applications, R programs explicitly record the actions of analysis and make it easy to reproduce and update report, which means it can quickly try many ideas and factual issues.

It can easily use it anywhere. It’s platform-independent, so it can apply it to each operating system. And it’s free, so it can implement it in any organization without purchasing a license.

Not solely is R Programming free, but it’s also open-source. That means anyone can examine the source code to see exactly what it’s doing. This also means that anyone, can fix bugs and add features, rather than waiting for the vendor to find/fix the bug and add the feature –at their discretion– in a future release.
