I have strange way of entertaining myself – I am learning F#, eating pizza, and drinking Sangria – all at the same time. My old mind is learning very slowly – but it does not realize this – and is thrilled to be learning anything.
Microsoft wants more people to use F#, a language that uses its .NET, and no one else has. In fact, there are places in Microsoft (such as Windows 10) that cannot use it either!
This is part of a whole new philosophy – give away good stuff, so people will use it! If it’s not good enough for them – make it better!
