That comparison is not valid. In its introduction, the tutorial to which
you refer notes that

   Our goal is to provide a gentle introduction to Haskell
   for someone who has experience with at least one
   other language, preferably a functional language ...

The tutorial link in bears this caution:

   The title is a bit misleading. Some knowledge of another
   functional programming language is expected.

So the reader is adequately warned that this is not an introduction to
functional programming. One who stumbles into a tutorial for which he is
not yet ready does himself no credit by blaming the tutorial.
