comment Why dynamically typed languages do not let the developer specify the type?
@Rein Henrichs: Cool. I am just asking because i hear people say that unit tests can replace static type checking. There are a lot of things Haskell's type system can guarantee (like the abscense of side-effects) which you can not possibly write a unit test for.

I would stress pure-functionality. Back then i was amazed, that you can guess by the declaration of e.g. "fst :: (a, b) -> a" what the function can only do. I also find code a lot easier to read, when i don't have to pay attention to variable reassignments.

comment Is pure oop necessary
@dmcnelis: Am i right that you are comparing OOP to procedural programming? Because i fail to see how this applies to functional programming languages.

comment Does Microsoft really offer “support”?
Paid support can be really nice, but it is not restricted to non-Open Source products. At a former employer we had MySql's Monty-himself log into our database servers, optimizing them.
