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.
