General Development Microsoft has come one step closer to delivering a parallel programming language to developers. On May 8, Microsoft made Axum, the company's foray into parallel programming, available on its MSDN DevLabs portal. Axum is a .NET language for building parallel applications. According to a Microsoft description, Axum "is a language that builds upon the architecture of the Web and principles of isolation, actors and message-passing to increase application safety, responsiveness, scalability and developer productivity."

Haven't gotten that deep into it yet, but axum is basically Erlang with a c-like syntax rather then a prolog-like syntax. I like the look of the code, definately going to play with it a bit more.
