C# 1.0 may be nice language. but since then he has borrowed features
here and there. it's like Ocaml that tries to join FP and OOP together

Haskell suffers from "committee problem" in his extensions. for
example, declaration styles for regular "data" and GADTs are
different, because peoples creating first and second had different
stylistic preferences
