GUIs can be expressed in a *much* more direct and modular way in functional
programming than imperative programming. See
http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Phooeyfor examples. No inversion of
control is necessary. And not just for GUIs,
but for reactive systems in general. See
http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Reactive and http://haskell.org/yampa/ .
I'd cite easy & modular GUIs as a strong advantage of functional
Just to be clear, I mean really *functional* programming, not imperative
programming in Haskell (IO).
