To add another point why OCaml is a pragmatic and usable language - 
OCaml has far better platform support than some even more established 
languages.  It's the only language I might choose for my personal 
projects other than C/C++ that supports native code for all of the 
relevant platforms I currently have access to.  I have FreeBSD/amd64, 
FreeBSD/x86, Linux/x86 and MacOS X machines, all of which run OCaml 
fine, and use various machines at work that should be supported 
(although the last time I tried, the CVS version built and worked on 
Tru64 but not Solaris/SPARC or HP-UX/PA).

Of course I'm not counting languages that use C or C++ as an 
intermediate language.
