Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Functional programming has been around since approximately forever.
AFAICS, all he claims is to have taken it to the Web. Sure, OT1H that might be fine and dandy and just about all-round super-duper...

But OTOH, there are reasons functional programming, despite having been around since approximately forever, hasn't yet taken the programming world as a whole by storm.

New Bah, that's what I get for having a post hanging around un-posted for 10 hrs: Beaten by Scott.
New :-) It was worth hearing your take on it regardless.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New OK, then here's some more:
OT1H, that whole "No side effects!" thing sounds like it often could be great. But OTOH, perhaps only when you explicitly want just a single value as a result, calculated from whatever inputs.

So what about all the other times, like in real-world application programs, where you actually want all kinds of shit to happen? Like saving stuff to disk, committing a database transaction, opening or closing one or more on-screen windows, etc. Or especially, several of those at once. "Those aren't 'side effects', they're what this is supposed to do!", kind of thing.

Summa summarum: It all feels a little too theoretical.
