Erlang vs F#: What are the differences?

Erlang: A programming language used to build massively scalable soft real-time systems with requirements on high availability. Some of Erlang's uses are in telecoms, banking, e-commerce, computer telephony and instant messaging. Erlang's runtime system has built-in support for concurrency, distribution and fault tolerance. OTP is set of Erlang libraries and design principles providing middle-ware to develop these systems; F#: Strongly-typed, functional-first programming language for writing simple code to solve complex problems. F# is a mature, open source, cross-platform, functional-first programming language. It empowers users and organizations to tackle complex computing problems with simple, maintainable and robust code.

Erlang and F# can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

"Real time, distributed applications" is the primary reason why developers consider Erlang over the competitors, whereas "Pattern-matching" was stated as the key factor in picking F#.

Erlang and F# are both open source tools. It seems that Erlang with 7.7K GitHub stars and 2.09K forks on GitHub has more adoption than F# with 2.08K GitHub stars and 341 GitHub forks.

WhatsApp, AdRoll, and Grooveshark are some of the popular companies that use Erlang, whereas F# is used by Olo, Huddle, and Property With Potential. Erlang has a broader approval, being mentioned in 70 company stacks & 45 developers stacks; compared to F#, which is listed in 18 company stacks and 16 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Erlang and F#?
      Elixir
      Elixir leverages the Erlang VM, known for running low-latency, distributed and fault-tolerant systems, while also being successfully used in web development and the embedded software domain.
      Haskell
      Go
      Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
      Clojure
      Clojure is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system.
      OCaml
      It is an industrial strength programming language supporting functional, imperative and object-oriented styles. It is the technology of choice in companies where a single mistake can cost millions and speed matters,
