  What I Hate About Your Programming Language
Subject:   Learn Common Lisp

From:   anonymous2
The ultimate dynamic language--superb object system with incredible introspection facilities through the MOP, good commercial compilers (www.franz.com, www.lispworks.com, www.scieneer.com), good free compilers (www.cons.org/cmucl), the speed benefits of a typed language (if you use type declarations and declare the appropriate optimization level), the ability to patch running programs, first-class closures, hash-tables, lists, arrays, strings, etc., numbers never over flow, and so much more... The only thing to hate is that relatively few people truly know it.
