The "advantage" of F# is that you get all the .NET framework (but this
leaves me some doubts, it is not possible to write an optimal framework
that needs to be accessed by different languages).
The advantage of Erlang is its robust and tested support for writing
scalable concurrent applications.
Many programmers don't like Erlang syntax, but, like for SQL, Erlang
just works and you just use it.
Haskell in this area is not as mature as Erlang, and it does not have
support for master/slave architecture.
