	Why choose?  I've learned a lot from each language.

	I do admit that I've shipped more ocaml code than erlang code,  
though.  ocaml is great for building utilities and erlang is great  
for building systems.  It really depends on your task.

	OTP really seems to me like what java wants to be when it grows up.
