F# is a very interesting language. It is really OCaml on .NET. Very powerful
functional programming ideas with all the libraries of the .NET world.It is,
in fact, where many of the new ideas in C# 2.0 came from (e.g. the Generics
implementation) and C# 3.0 (e.g. type inference) are coming from. There is
an implementation of their LINQ ideas too.
