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."

RE[3]: oh no not another one

Member since:

F# came from MSR, and it is going to ship with the next version of visual studio. Basically OCaml for the CLR.

F# is a bastardized version of OCaml, just like C++/CLR is a bastardized version of C++ for the CLR.

If the CLR is as language-agnostic as microsoft claims, why can't they just do a straight port of OCaml to the CLR?
