I want it will be
- native code generation // Able to compile with something like GHC
- cross-platform (win / linux)
- Functional and a bit object-oriented
- lambdas, pattern matching, tuples and other functional stuff
- Great metaprogramming support
- Indent and minimum borders
- static typing
- also I want Mixin support :)
- possibility to build web sites based on some frameworks is also good plus.
- so and yes, performance and stability matters.
I started Haskell, but still being not sure about it, because there is OCaml. And I've got F# experience. But as far as I know OCalm is a bit OOP and sometimes even faster (not sure about it) I never tried it. There is also erlang, I know nothing about erlang. And maybe I'm missing something more..? Python, I have no idea about python here, it's functional and it's oop and it supports mixin and popular and fast, but I don'r really think that python is able for all the functional magic, I think it can not.
I know that this thread/topic is a like a talking about nothing or like a language war, but I seriously and really want to hear your vision of it.
