comment Should you charge clients hours spent on the wrong track?
That's how all other professions do. Only programmers are "noble" (or, putting it straight, naive) to even think about not billing for all hours worked on client's problem.

comment Are there any downsides or problems with Haskell?
"And hand-optimized Haskell code is often quite ugly (though I suppose that is also true in most other languages)." This. When people want to show the elegance of Haskell, they publish short and sweet code, which unfortunately would give you quite bad performance if run on a production-like amount of data. When people want to show that "Haskell is as fast as C++", they publish convoluted and hard to read code, which is still slower than a much more readable version in C.

comment Is garbage collection necessary?
It's not "necessary", it's "just" very useful very often.
