How about an almost 7:1 productivity gain? Well, maybe you might not call it productivity, but then what if you had to write 7 times less code? In rebuilding Racket’s graphic layer 200,000 lines of C++ code was replaced by 30,000 lines of Racket (Scheme) code πŸ™‚ In revenge of the nerds Paul Graham mentions that Lisp is way more powerful than other languages. So, are you working with one of the productive languages or a blub πŸ˜‰

      Hey Sachin,

      I came back to India (with family, for good) on 16th Jan, 2011. These days I am on a sabbatical and am learning Lisp and then I’ll learn Clojure (a Lisp on the JVM). I’ve had enough of Windows, .Net and desktop apps, and want to do some interesting web / android stuff. Check your mail for my number.
