I think what Wolfgang meant was that different Haskell implementations
may have:
- different executable names, so you have to invoke them differently
- different options
- different style of work

Of course, all of them should accept all Haskell 98 programs.

I am searching for a programmer who is good at least in some of
[Haskell, ML, C++, Linux, FreeBSD, math] for work in Warsaw, Poland
