me too. actually, i write time-critical parts of my app in c++

this list is meaningless, as i said before

that's different question. i think that at the last end lazy languages
will become as efficient as assembler, it just may happen not in my
lifespan :)

if you don't know how to implement things in C, you cannot do it
efficiently in Haskell too. when i write efficient code in Haskell, i
actually use Haskell as obscure assembler (the same holds for C)

they also can't make you coffee but it's is different story. i use
Haskell too. i just know that it is slow and use other languages when
i really need speed. it's why my archiver is world's fastest one :)
