Further news on World Domination

Don Syme blogs about taking F# forward, which means, it seems, that F# will leave the confines of MS Research and be fully integrated into Visual Studio, as a product. If this is right, it's a great step for F# as a language and for functional programming in general, as we'll have a first-class IDE, by a major vendor, shipping with a functional programming language.

F# is already a great language to use, so I look forward to it getting still greater. The next step for Microsoft is to embrace Visual Haskell and fully integrate Haskell in Visual Studio too :)
