OSNews, Generic OSes Change platforms. Whenever you can. Ever since I got into computing, I've lived according to a very simple adage: change platforms all the time. For reasons I won't go into, the importance of this adage was reaffirmed today, and I figured I'd share it with you all - and hopefully, get a few of you to follow this adage as well.

Well, I do plan on learning Haskell and Common LISP one of these days so that should help too.

I'll advise to start with F#/Scala/Ocaml/Clojure before going into Haskell and Common Lisp.

Since the former have more industry acceptance, you might even be able to use them on a day job.

I'll freely admit I haven't given enough attention to the concepts and constructs like tail recursion and continuations which never make it into the more mainstream multi-paradigm languages like Python.

If I remember correctly, Stackless Python has continuations.
