Hello. I have been programming in (common) Lisp for about a week now. I have a pretty rudimentary knowledge of the language (I am about half way through 'Practical Common Lisp'). I am already finding Lisp a really enjoyable and incredibly powerful language to use. So much so that I prefer it to C++ and C, by quite a long way. I just don't understand why Lisp isn't used by everyone for everything. I have programs that I have written in Lisp that use only about a quarter the amount of lines as programs I have written in C++, and been far more efficient. Its better for almost every purpose I can think of. On the internet, I have found may people share my view, so I just don't understand why its not as well-used as it deserves to be.
