This is cheating, IMHO.
Some test comparisons are unfair.
The first problem is with the thread-ring benchmark.
Haskell uses the "concurrent Haskell" extension, but all other programs
(with some exceptions) uses OS threads.
This is unfair, as an example a C program can make use of the GNU
threads library, for user space threads), but there is no such program.
If I remove the thread-ring bench, then Haskell goes sixth, after Java
With parallel programs it is the same: other languages does not have a
