two comments, already:
I really enjoy haskell. I had to learn it for a concepts of programming language class where we had to learn 40+ languages and I wish I could use it more often. It seems more natural to programming it haskell than c++, java, or god forbid vb.net.

HLSL has a quite functional impact as well (although it isn’t purely functional, still quite imperative), as well are the shader networks found in 3d modelling packages. functional programming frees from the burden of manually tracking when the hardware registers are free (and eliminating common subexpressions); most shaders are essentially cascaded functions anyways… (you can write them as a mathematical formula)
