Linspire Linux distribution standardizes on Haskell

From Chris Double's web log: the Linspire Linux distro is standardizing on Haskell. It would be interesting to see a well-designed language used in place of the mess of Perl/Python/bash scripts that infest a Linux distro.

Actually, I've always wondered why scsh doesn't get more press. I know Scheme is 'academic' and all that, but when people describe Python as being almost like Lisp but better for working with Unix, scsh never gets mentioned.
