some time i will write "Haskell advertisement" wiki. key Haskell selling points
i plan to mention is its expressiveness, reliability, excellent support
for concurrency while higher-order funcs, parameterized ADTs, polymorphism,
laziness, immutable data and various other language features are just
concrete Haskell instruments that allow to reach these universal
programmers goals

meanwhile, i recommend you to look into "why Haskell matters" and
