Comment Haskell is the language for future OS (Score 0, Offtopic) 366

I though it was interesting that one of the requirements for building the barrelfish-thing is GHC v6.8.2 (Glasgow Haskell). Although, from a quick look at it, I got the impression that the Haskell-stuff is used for various tools, and maybe not for the kernel itself. Using Haskell to write kernel modules is of course already a possibility for us Linux users (http://tommd.wordpress.com/2009/09/13/kernel-modules-in-haskell/) ;)
