I probably shouldn't even answer that. I keep thinking I only just found 
out about Haskell, but I have PDF files containing Haskell tutorials, 
written by me, dated 2005 and earlier. o_O

How long did it take to be "comfortable" with Haskell? A few weeks, I think.

How long did it take to become an "expert"? Ask me when I become an expert!

It seems to me that Haskell is like Go: The rules are easy. The 
strategies for using them... are not.
