F# to become a first class citizen in the .NET space


I hope that MS embrace the communities of other popular functional languages like Haskell to great a truly amazing functional language, not that F# isn't already.

The more time I spend with F# the more I start to lose my interest in Haskell and that language is just great! 

I must say this is music to my ears when the VP of dev div (Soma) announces it.

A commenter posted the following on Soma's blog:

This looks like Microsoft's solution to Python.

I wonder how many times we will be seeing this now that F# just got a little more mainstream? :-)  This actually seems to be a pretty common assertion from people looking at the actual syntax of F# for the first time, reality is that F# is a static language.

Let the good times roll!
