Yes. There is more than Haskell.

"Generic programming" is a bad term so I do not care if it is used in 
the Haskell sense or in the Wikipedia sense. It should not be used at all.

Do we read different Wikipedia-s? Wikipedia article "Type system" 
discussed all kinds of type system, including dependent, linear, 
intersection. Yes, dynamic typing is a type system. Sorry, dear, I 
forgot you did not like it.
