Yes! You are right commercials benefits from academics; NO DOUBT!
No one will discuss anything against that because that's obvious where is
the source. But It is not obvious where is the destination. Maybe new-comers
need to be more Haskellized first. But that's not the problem. In this
thread many good libraries has been named for : XML, GUI, OpenGL, WEB, etc.
Yet this can not be named "mature". As a "research foundation" point of view
Haskell is perfect. Again no doubt about It. But this feature-full dude
(Haskell) makes it's way in different directions without harmony. For
example some of the projects are dead for about 3-4 years (especially
So this libraries are living and growing in separate islands lonely! And
this can not be a plateform for development.
And about being over-demanding : Maybe this is true. But why Haskell is
over-demanding? Because It is attracting! That's a point of power and a big
plus (If it gets to be seen!).
