> assuming you are open to being locked into the .NET family

Which is not different than being locked into e.g. JVM family, or even being locked into OCaml itself.

.NET (redone as Core) was a much worse choice 20 years ago than it is now of course. If they would fully open up the debugger, I would prefer it over the JVM. OCaml is more open (for .NET Core, there is still no good open debugger and the JVM suffers from Oracle keeping closed performance enhancements which, in my experience, do make big difference) than either of them, but not many people like programming it so it is hard to find people.
