I think you are referring to Erlang? Please mention that in your Title so that Author's can identify the posts easily.

I think it is because a famous use of Erlang is in some telecom switches. I wonder if this really IS a noteworthy part of Erlang or just the most famous project.

The one time I noticed using software written in Erlang was Wings, a 3d modeller.

And so that the moderators don't decide this is a "Jobs Discussion" question and move it to that forum.

See for example Alain O'Dea's examples of some successful Erlang projects in this thread: http://www.coderanch.com/t/517404/threads/java/General-Erlang-questions-book-authors

In particular, Erlang is fantastic for gluing other systems together (in particular if they speak strange protocols), or controlling and supervising, distributing traffic, etc. But it can be used for a wide variety of tasks (as Wings3D has shown).
