The Haskell Platform is a single, standard Haskell distribution for
every system, in the form of a blessed library and tool suite for
Haskell distilled from the thousands of libraries on Hackage, along
with installers for a wide variety of systems. It saves developers
work picking and choosing the best Haskell libraries and tools to use
for a task.

When you install the Haskell Platform, you get the latest stable
compiler, an expanded set of core libraries, additional development
tools, and cabal-install – so you can download anything else you need
from Hackage.
