More like you are the dinosaur! Sure, Excel is
from 1987 and SML (Standard Meta Language) is
from 1990.

But SML is a modern implementation of ML from
way back in 1973! ML is sometimes called
"Lisp with types". But Lisp also have types,
only in a different way.

SML and other modern dialects of ML are today
common at universities and popular with
CS people in general (compiler writers,
language-for-the-sake-of-language guys etc.),
but perhaps CS people with a more engineering
inclination than the purists on Haskell.
