The programmer formerly known as Joh. Joh used to think C++ was the greatest language on Earth, but he has now found the light in .net thanks to F#. Joh loved Linux and seldom used his installation of Windows. Due to his recent discovery and F#, he is now spending all of his computer time on Windows. He is not quite sure if this is a good thing or not.

comment What is the role of C++ today?
C++ is not the only language using scope for releasing resources. IDisposable in .Net together with the using keywork in C# and use in F#. Combine that with async and you get scope-based resource and exception handling together with asynchronous programming.

comment Assembly as a First Programming Language?
Computer Science certainly has abstracts subjects, but it's also very "close to the hardware" in some respects. I once attended LICS, a Computer Science conference. I remember it had papers about data locality of various sorting algorithms which I imagine gives theoretical foundations to the study of practical efficiency of algorithms. Regarding assembly, I personally find it has some resemblance to some theoretical computation models (Turing machines, counter machines...)

comment Real world pitfalls of introducing F# into a large codebase and engineering team
All very relevant information, I'm not sure why people are down-voting your post. As much as I like F#, the question has to do with its negative sides, and posts pointing these out should not be down-voted by F#-lovers.

comment Real world pitfalls of introducing F# into a large codebase and engineering team
You are asking for real-life pitfalls, but are including potential pitfalls in your question. This is inviting for more "imaginary" pitfalls in answers, or for off-topic answers refuting the pitfalls you are considering. If would downvote your because of this formulation problem if I could (reputation too low)
