This sounds like a personal preference for dynamic vs strongly typed.

I could rewrite your entire comment in reverse about how I find C# highly expressive and readable while dynamic languages or Kotlin (blech) are a mess of inconsistent whack-a-doodle experimentation.

But my opinion is useless.

The value in any platform is productivity and if any given team can be productive, it doesn't matter if it's COBOL, RPG-3, Pascal, BASIC, or a functional language like F# or plain old JavaScript.




Actually I like static typing, I mentioned I rewrote a project in F# in like 1/3 of the code from C# solution.

It's more that C# is static typing done poorly IMO - a relatively limited type system that adds overhead compared to dynamic languages or more expressive static languages.
