OOP and functional programming

So hands up all those who remember CESIL ?


What, no-one studied Computing in the 1970's?

Here's an opportunity:
OOP in MIX.

About languages which have disappeared over the decades, Rosetta Code references 874 different languages. Most of them are just dead...

I'd forgotten about MIX. Knuth's TAOCP was referenced during our data structure/algorithms university courses and we had an implementation to play around with written by a 3rd year student as their project.
Many people might agree with me on this. OOP and Functional programming both have their place. For example, you wouldn't use C# for writing a kernel or any other low-level environment.
@NoahP: Is Haskell for kernel developers or do we disagree on the meaning of "functional programming"?
Actually Microsoft was doing research some years ago on an OS written almost entirely in C# and running as managed code, called Singularity. It was abandoned, which I think it's a shame because it was an interesting project, but it proves that it's definitely possible.
Huh, I ran across Cosmos, something that supposedly uses C# and is "an operating system development kit which uses Visual Studio as its development environment."

Looks semi-interesting, but not something I want to fool around with.
Looks interesting. I'll save it for later, thanks!
I thought that Singularity is about containers for HPC: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singularity_(software)
