Luckily this is a small list, otherwise a flame war would have started by now.

Personally, I learnt the basics of Haskell in the year 2000 in
college. I am re-learning it again, and it's an absolute delight. I am
not a programmer by profession - and this is the only language which
*makes* me want to learn it as I am generally interested in math and
bit of CS theory. It's also interesting to note that Haskell is being
used in finance, and maybe I will get to use it professionally one
