I use MATLAB for most of my day-in-day-out work. I teach statistics using R. For the most part, I am happy using MATLAB (if only because its what I know best), but two features of R that I really miss in MATLAB are:
1) Dataframes - a neat wrapper for statistical data (variables in columns, cases in rows)
2) The idea of a model object - run a regression or whatever and then get back an object to manipualate it
So I have implemented (partially) these two features in MATLAB. The documentation is sparse and features are currently biased in my own research directions. I would welcome comments and code contributions (which would be fully acknowledged).
