That is not true, Lisp is not all about linked list. Optimised maps exist in all major lisps which are essentially Random access. Also Self balancing binary search trees can be easily implemented which are a good compromise, the only community that is keen on Random Access DS is the Haskell community which spends all its energy and resources in writing research papers on "Sieve of Eratosthenes" instead of doing something more productive.
