The F# community are having a difficult time to decide how the language should evolve. Some want to make it closer to other functional languages, others want to keep it simple; for some compatibility with C# it's important, for others it's not. Can people from very different backgrounds, skill levels and goals ever reach an agreement? Is this confluence of software development experiences a weakness of the language and its community, or can we turn it into its greatest strength?
