  1. I would add that F# “adds” certain functionality that doesn’t exist in C#. For example, Silverlight currently does not have declerative parallelism (PLINQ or TPL) that full .NET has.

    However, in F# I can use asynchronous workflows in Silverlight 3 or 4 and have the full power of declerative multi-core programming. I wrote an article about it here:

    So..I do think that F# can be “the choice” for multi-core programming in some cases.

  2. Thankfully some bloggers can write. Thank you for this blog!
