Why Isn’t F# the King of .NET?

I completely disagree your claim that functional languages will be the norm within 5 years. As Aman Singh said, the hype that ‘functional programming if the future’ has been going on for decades, and yet it never truly took off. I honestly, still dont buy the hype of FP at this moment, at least not with a short period of 5–10 years.

There are many reasons for this that I cannot list them all in a blog comment, but you may find this interesting to read on Quora.com:
