Totally true, but this was more of a comparison between the patterns of the gang of four book to functional programming, not the other way around. But yes, functional programming has its own patterns though I think they are much smaller and simpler

Well, from my point of view they are not simpler, but different. The "apply my function when data available" way of thinking behind monads is a true pleasure after countless "if's" of traditional imperative code.
