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."

God forbid that one actually develop skill and insight in software development before leaping onto a language bandwagon ...

Perhaps the world would be using Lisp/Dylan, SmallTalk and (Obj-)C instead of Visual Basic, Java and C(++) ...
