@ Matej Cepl, sweet, thanks... and so it has began.
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.
LINQ substituted T-SQL (assembly language of the Database), Making a way with the web assembly language, would be next logical step. It would be a realization of many smart people.
Happy to hear that Roslyn Project is doing well...
Last 10 years of language innovations... and now we are heading towards "Scripting" (aka hacking)?
Can we fast-forward, and get to C# type language (with .NET Framework set of libraries, and XAML for UI) for building "browser apps". On desktop we already have great developer story. Kudos to Anders, Cwalina, Abrams, Gossman for making this happen.
* "browser apps" that is an oxymoron
I hope F# team will have free hand and resources to continue pioneer work in language features... and in turn we get benefit of their work in C#... kudos to C#, F# and VB.NET teams... .NET Power! Platform for many programming languages, under one runtime.
Following and using F# allows to stay on forefront of new language developments... async workflows, generic invoke, TypeProviders... domain exploration, and so much more... keep up the amazing features coming... I have used F# for prototyping financial calculations for a bank; really extremely pleasant development experience.
I felt compelled to add my own disenchantment about the "in the browser" help system for VS2010, after using it for few months ... it is slow and a form of torture to use it. It is a step backwards... Where is the kick a** WPF based Document Explorer?
