      Great job, you guys. 

       

      "If you want to get something done fast, you use F#." -- William Blum

       

      "When you have 3 months to build a project, you don't want to spend all your time debugging. You want to spend most of your time creating value. [With F#] you spend more time doing what you like: thinking about the program you are trying to implement and the logic of your program, rather than just trying to debug a null pointer dereference -- like you would in C# for instance." -- William Blum

       

      "If you can use C#, you can use F#. There is no thing that you can build with one that you cannot build with the other." -- William Blum

       

      "Functional programming languages have won." -- William Blum

       

      Great stuff!

      You two really peaked my interest in F#. I will be using it soon with all my DevExpress XAF and Azure Code. :)
