Response to: And what do you think about ERLANG
Yeah, what he said. I'm a Scheme zealot working in a Java/C++ world, and have found Erlang to be a very nice practical compromise. Its combination of a strict functional [no side affects] core and asynchronous message-passing-based multi-processing is really powerful; you get the features you need for most client-server apps with the simplicity and clarity of functional programming.
