A few years back, someone published a similar AF for the Glasgow
Haskell Compiler (GHC) saying that it was going to become a Microsoft
A couple of months later, Simon Peyton-Jones, their leading light,
sold out to Microsoft Research, taking GHC and its development with
him. I later attended a Haskell seminar in which the presentation
about Reliable Software in Haskell couldn't use their slides because
were trying to run their "reliable software" on a Windows laptop. I
had to laugh!
Later, GHC then became the first Debian package that couldn't be
compiled on ARM because the code segment of its executable file was
larger than 32MB. I had to cry!
So good luck! I look forward to the "Build GHC" checkbox ;-)
