haskell code is easily ported between OSes, unlike C one. when i
ported my application from Win to Linux, i spend one day on haskell
code and 3 days on C one, despite the fact that haskell code dealed
with OS interaction and C used purely for computations

C works on windows as well as it works on Unix, it just need some work
to be ported between OSes, and since most developers just use one OS,
C code has much more chances to remain OS-specific
