  What I Hate About Your Programming Language

Response to: Haskell

Cynical thought. What's funny is when COBOL first came out it advertised largely the same benefits. Quoting from Haskell.org:


* Substantially increased programmer productivity (Ericsson measured an improvement factor of between 9 and 25 in one set of experiments on telephony software).
* Shorter, clearer, and more maintainable code.
Fewer errors, higher reliability.
* A smaller "semantic gap" between the programmer and the language.
* Shorter lead times.
