[Haskell-cafe] I read somewhere that for 90% of a wide class of computing problems, you only need 10% of the source code in Haskell, that you would in an imperative language.

One of my first impressiions with haskell was absence of impendance mismatch 
between my thoughts and my code. This is not nessesarily true for everyone 
because people has different ways of thinking I beleive.

P.S. And haskell doesn't have tendency to eat brain away like C++ does.
