Interesting paper.  They went with cooperative multitasking, .NET,
unordered messaging, abstracted-away supervision and distribution, what
appears to be optional immutability, and promises/futures, but on the plus
side ( :D ), dynamic load balancing and automatic distributed restarts on
server failures.  Good reading to help create intuition about why Erlang
does things the way that it does, and some alternative
approaches/optimizations for slightly different but similar problem sets
under the actor model.
