racket: super fun, but slow cold start on CLI (I presume it's due to its VM)
gerbil: built on gambit scheme. Still in development, but I like its syntax and features. The build process has failed on me twice in different versions though, which speaks for the maturity of the project
CL/SBCL: no complaints here, worked well after I read some 10 articles to get things going
Rust: obvs has everything I need but I still find it too complicated
Haskell: I like it but I really need to discipline myself to not overcomplicate my code. Also I don't like monads for type-coding side effects, sue me
Still to evaluate: chicken scheme, gambit scheme (which gerbil is built on top of), Ocaml
Still on the fence about: interpreted langs. Here the benchmark is Python, it just has to be super fast and somewhat fun to work with (I have no problem with said "outdated" langs)
