I agree with Neil here. I've been working with Haskell for a while and
I wouldn't have the foggiest idea of how to start a GUI / Database
project. After working with C# for about a week, I had a substantial
GUI / Database program going for a company I interned with last
summer. Haskell is good for a lot of things, and I'm sure somebody
someday will show me that Haskell is even great for GUI/Database, but
you should always use the right tool for the job, and for your job,
I'd say C# is the right tool.
