__TOC__
   
The platform saves you the task of picking and choosing the best Haskell libraries and tools to use for a task. Distro maintainers that support the Haskell Platform can be confident they're fully supporting Haskell as the developers intend it. Developers targetting the platform can be confident they have a trusted base of code to work with.
