Tractor: A CLR Language for Numerical Computation
The original intention of the dotnet was to provide a runtime for many programming languages to run on. Two factors have kept that vision from fruition: tying .NET Framework to Windows and the dominance of C#.
Dotnet can now run on almost any modern system. A significant push has been made toward performance features for C# and the CLR. The intention is to close the performance gap between systems-level programming languages (C, C++, Rust, Zig, and Odin, to name a few) and what can be achieved on the dotnet platform.
A general-purpose language like C# and F# must support
