F# would have made a more interesting comparison to R... nevertheless, it seems that R statistical libraries can be access from F#...
Value that Prism offers is immense... far too many developers have constructed "big ball of mud" without any code structure. Prism provides simple way to apply proven patterns and practices for building extensible, module and maintainable .NET application that can evolve with requirements, and withstand test of time. Having architectural guidance such as Prism improves image of solutions build in .NET. Application without necessary code structure look like a product written by struggling amateur.
Practicing concepts contained in Prism library, help me to build better server side code (modularity, component discovery), and be more effective software developer. I consider Prism essential part of any professional .NET application developer toolbox!
Very glad to hear about potential of Regions available on WinRT and Forms.
@Charles: kudos... thanks for opening the vault 😃
If the project would follow-through... could prove to be offering similar to GWT, but for .NET... was there no appetite for it?
Charles, any reason why this video was held back?

If MS would in early 2000's, after .NET began; push CIL as a common (low level) browser language (in IE, Mozila, Opera, etc..); the future would have been a lot brighter. Developers could target it using any "human language" of their choice, which was the promise of .NET/CIL.
... easy for me to say, now
