"1 What is Erlang
"1.1 In a nutshell, what is Erlang?
"Erlang is a general-purpose programming language and runtime

I would be wary about making broad statements about what erlang is and
what it was "designed to do".

OTOH, discussions about how well the platform integrates with a
particular supported OS is certainly up for grabs.
