F# reaching a wider audience

There are now dozens of F#-related articles at The Code Project covering a variety of interesting topics.

Some vendors have also started to publish literature describing how their products can be used from F#. For example, the Extreme Optimization high-performance numerical libraries for .NET now provide examples in F#.

Recent events like Microsoft's PDC 2010 including a lecture from Don Syme on The Future of F# and the recent release of the F# compiler and tool stack as open source software have massively boosted the visibility of F# which is great to see, not least because sales of Visual F# 2010 for Technical Computing just doubled!
