I was just being sarcastic in that second posting. OCaml and Haskell are something new. They're not just exotic scripting languages - in the way that Ruby is just Perl with a different syntax. They are something considerably more powerful and expressive that can take programming in new directions. Unfortunately explaining this is a bit like the Paul Graham explaining LISP to "Blub" programmers.

It's hard to find explanations that do a worse job of introducing people to Lisp. There's a good explanation of Haskell (PDF), including a bit of history, design choices and an overview of the functional programming paradigm.

Haskell, by the way, is roughly of the same age as Python, but is expected to become the next great programming language Any Moment Now. Or maybe not.
