> If ocaml gets multicore finished before 20XX, do you think that f# developers who came from outside dotnet could be coaxed to ocaml?

Pfft. Run reasonml/ocaml on node, one event loop pr core, and use message passing for synchronisation / distributing work ;-)

I'm only half-joking.

Tangentially relevant: There is a serious and ambitious PR implemeting proper (web-worker style) threading support in Node.js core.


I think we'd disagree about the relevance of this, but that IS exciting news! I'm very impressed overall with node progress, especially considering how unstable the ground seems to be, or have been, in jsverse.
