OCaml is one of the few languages I'd really like to get into - I already know quite a few languages ranging from C++ to Python and Perl. It is a very high level language that can run interpreted or compiled into machine code that rivals C for efficiency (and beats it on some benchmarks).

A modern Lisp has similar attributes and is probably better supported with tools and other infrastructure, but OCaml has a nicer syntax and seems to be evolving very fast.
