Why isn't radare2 the standard for reverse engineering, given you can use other tools within it as plugins

    Ghidra is a software reverse engineering (SRE) framework

    Ghidra was built by the NSA to "solve scaling and teaming problems on complex SRE efforts, and to provide a customizable and extensible SRE research platform" (from their README on GitHub). r2 might be customizable and extensible as well, but it was never built to solve huge problems requiring a team of people building a common body of knowledge on a specific reverse engineering task. That "scaling" part is one of the main things holding r2 back in a lot of contexts: It's simply not a useful way to store and share knowledge about a complex RE task.
