Giving F# another look

Here is an interesting comparison among Haskell, Ocaml, and F# hashtable implementations.

F# is starting to look very good.  It used to be only a research project at Microsoft, and much slower than Ocaml.  Now, it's part of Visual Studio 2010, and the speed is clearly competitive with Ocaml for some common operations.  The clear syntax might encourage adoption at Fortune 500 cos.

I guess I should learn F# along with the .NET API.  I can use Ocaml for MacOS work.  The languages are quite similar, afterall.
