Do you use Erlang/OTP? For personal projects? Professionally?

I've used it a little, but I have more interest than experience. My background is more in Perl, PHP, and Python, but I've played around with Erlang and Haskell, and want to learn more.

Favorite thing about Erlang/OTP (or coolest line of code):

It's a tie between light-weight, massive concurrency/parallelism and easy, message-passing and process control. The bit syntax, hot-swappable code, and staggering uptime reputation are really nice, too.


I want to get a better feel for practical application of Erlang/OTP to common problems, as well as the functional programming idiom.
