Thanks for your passion around this. We’ve been discussing this item off and on for some time now and we’d love to get your input.
The reason we’ve resisted this is because the R runtime & various packages (and updating their versions) aren’t straightforward for other users to install. This limits sharing such queries across a workgroup.
What do you think?
For others reading this that’d like us to prioritize this work, please be sure to add your vote since we’re prioritizing our backlog based on these.

I didn't understand this information: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-considers-adding-python-as-an-official-scripting-language-to-excel/
If Power BI is able to call a R script, why do you think about Python before enabling R from Excel ?
