More Sharp Languages

Continuing on the theme of .NET languages, here are a few more:

F# is a language in the ML family of programming languages.

P# is a Prolog implementation designed for the .NET Framework.

S# is a complete modular redesign of the Smalltalk language, offering cross-language integration and component based deployment.

The good news is if you’re planning to create a .NET language using the same naming scheme you still have 21 other letters of the alphabet to choose from. But you may want to avoid I#. The name is already used for a pencil sharpener that looks like an old iMac.
