General Development Are the C programming language and its object-oriented offspring - C++, C#, Objective-C - still well-suited to the requirements of multithreaded, network-oriented computing environments today? That's the question on the minds of engineers at Microsoft Research, whose latest programming language is today being officially moved off the back burner. The F# language has received the company's official blessing.

Functional and procedural are completely different. Procedural programs depend heavily on mutable state. Functional program may have no mutable state at all.

I guess you could make that argument too. It's still procedure (function) driven though. So it's kind of a half-state between Functional and Structured from that perspective.
