  • It would be a hell of a commute (I'm in NYC), and I'd be the wrong person for the job anyway, but this is a really great indicator of how committed MS is/are (I speak US and UK) to the language. Official Silverlight support, and tools, for F#? F# on the XBox!

    This is a really great time to be programming. Thank goodness I stayed awake at (some of) these math classes.
