My road to Haskell went from C, C++ and Perl through Ocaml, Clean and
Erlang. I was mainly motivated by dissatisfaction with languages I used
at the moment. I am very happy with Haskell and I think I'll be using it
for some time.

I still use C++ at work, mostly because of performance requirements and
participation in multi-developer projects (multi stands for 2-3 here).
To be honest, I am very happy with what we managed to achieve in C++,
but I still get angry when I code some more complicated but
less-performance-critical parts and I think how easy it would be in
Haskell :)
