comment Scheme vs Haskell for an Introduction to Functional Programming?
BTW I did order The Little MLer from Amazon and have already received it and started on my Journey. I also just added Learning F# to my library. Seems to be a more mainstream teaching guide, that I will be using to supplement The Little MLer with.

Thanks for nudging me towards ML/OCaml, and yes I will "risk my soul" and explore F#. I do develop for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows (mainly the former) but FSI does appear to be available for all three platforms (running mono on Linux and Mac OS X) which I already do. The fact that the full weight of Microsoft is behind a functional programming language (albeit an "impure" one), should be welcomed rather than decried by fans of functional programming.
