I makes it impossible to mess up concurrency - seriously. The downside is a very unusual syntax (based on Prolog) and a different way of thinking (all variables are immutable - once defined they can't be changed).

Although you can achieve the same aims in other languages (really it's just immutable state and message passing that makes the concurrency rock solid) you have to be damn disciplined to do so.
