[Haskell-cafe] Haskell vs OCaml

Hi all,

Okay, I've been studying Haskell for a few days and I think I have a 
feel for the language. I completted a course, and wrote a Revers Polish 
Notation calculator.

Now that I sort of understand Haskell, I was hoping someone could give 
me an opinion on OCaml from a Haskell POV. Both are functional and have 
fairly clear syntax. OCaml is supposed to be very fast, and Haskell 
perhaps is not. Besides that, what else could you say about them? What 
would make someone prefer one over the other?

Any thoughts, opinions and comments would be most appreciated.
