View Thread: Is F# really "C# Advanced"?
  • tomkirbygre​en

    So back in the day we had Mort (VB), Elvis (C# with a web bias) and Einstein (C++). With F# becoming an 'official' language sponsored by the C# team what persona should we encumber tag F# with?

    Joking aside I find the intersection of C# 3.0, F# and ParallelFX with their common Functional meta-theme an interesting mix, esp. with the apparent degree of involved shared people resources within Microsoft. Is F# destined to become "C# Advanced"? Or will C#'s eventual replacement be Elvis-orientated version of F#? What do folks think?
