[Haskell-cafe] Is there anyone out there who can translate C# generics into Haskell?

The best place to start learning Haskell is with the simplest type  
features, not the most complicated.  And it's the simplest features  
that are most unlike OO.

Yes, Haskell will be `strange'.  But if you think you're `the  
intersection' between Haskell and OO, you'll think things are  
familiar, and you'll be surprised when they turn  out to be  
different.  I'd concentrate on watching out for differences --- but  
then I can't imagine how finding `familiar' ideas would help.
