Pretty much. I'm sure that this new concepts thing is an improvement over whatever they have; but when I compare it to the equivalent in Haskell I almost want to cry. The way they do it in Haskell seems so much cleaner and less of an after thought.
Any type simply declares that it implements Ord, or Show, or whatever you need, and then functions can declare that they require a type to implement that.
Of course Haskell has it's own problems with error messages not being entirely useful and code being slow as shit if you don't know exactly how to optimize.

I don't have any of those things. I have a computer with no disk drive.
99.99% of the time you don't need one. It's not worth it to me to get a disk drive that will then not work because it hasn't been used in years. Media gets on my PC and tv via internet, or USB.
If they want me to watch their stuff, they have to make it available in a format I can use.
I'm not going out of my way to accommodate them.
