    It looks like nice language, though it is for .NET programming only. Functional programming is nice, but functional programming languages are not used very much at companies. Ericsson has its Erlang, http://www.erlang.se/, but I wouldn't know much more commercial application of functional programming.

    Perhaps it is a lack of tools and functional programming is not very widely known. This may be solved by Microsoft, at least I think they will provide a nice development environment for it. Another link on F#.

    With C# and VB.NET so far ahead, I don't see much happening with F#.

    Looks nice, but I just wish I could learn more about it. Too bad MS is developing it. Just another thing to support their Windows platform.

    "LOL d00dz M$$ is EVIL!!! F# is the DEVIL BECAUSE IT IS SPAWNED FROM BILL GATES' VAGINA!"

    That's all I can hear from this thread.

    Personally, I've never done Cobol/Fortran/Pascal/Whatever, but I'd give F# a shot if it ever came out.

    I really don't have any great hopes or expectations for F#. I can't really see what the target developer community is for it. I'll reserve judgement on it until I actually see it in action though.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    The "F" is for functional
