Surge in popularity of F#

InfoWorld reports that F# is becoming ever more popular. It has risen from 69th to 12th in the Tiobe Programming Community Index.

I’ve been writing F# code for over 3 years and I get the appeal – there are some algorithms that are so much easier to implement in F# than in C++ (particularly when they can be neatly expressed with the additional data structures that F# provides, like discriminated unions).
