I think you underestimate the adaptability of existing languages.

Java has been preparing to move towards immutability&FP. At glacier-like 
speed, admittedly, but once those massively multicore systems appear, 
Java will be prepared to move.

Haskell can claim to be already there, but wrt. how many issues have 
been staying unaddressed, it's no better than Java, it's just different 
IOW this is not a predetermined race.
