Installer: Axum is an incubation project from Microsoft’s Parallel Computing Platform that aims to validate a safe and productive parallel programming model for the .NET framework. It’s a language that builds upon the architecture of the web and the principles of isolation, actors, and message-passing to increase application safety, responsiveness, scalability and developer productivity. Other advanced concepts we are exploring are data flow networks, asynchronous methods, and type annotations for taming side-effects.
Programmer’s Guide: Use this simple and easy to follow programmer’s guide to learn how to create safe, scalable, and responsive applications with the Axum language.
Language Specification: A detailed specification of the Axum language.
Though a curly-brace/C# like language this still looks kind of interesting. :p
Now I really need to get a quad core machine so I can really put something like this through its passes.
