What's your bar for "other language"? Remember that C# is a mainstream language, with all that entails in terms of stability and conservatism of language design (and the other way around - it's popular partly because it's conservative). Comparable languages are Java, C++ and the like; and in that category, C# is, generally speaking, more on the "progressive" end of the spectrum. Comparing it to something like Scala is rather apples and oranges.
