Said about Scala as an alternative
Scala was made with the explicit purpose of being a better Java. It is more concise and has many more useful features.

Both languages are functional. But Scala also supports OOP. This has its advantages as well as drawbacks. But it is a better alternative than Python or Java or C etc. I'm wondering why Scala is not on top of Haskell's alternatives list.
