So, while the same things may be possible in both languages, I bet it's going to be easier and faster to get there in C#.

I bet there are loads of niche fields like that that have become stuck with an old language for exactly this reason.

On the money here. The same code bases exist for most computational sciences (physics, chem, engineering, etc). It really is a bummer though because fortran isnt much fun lol.

It really shouldn't be that surprising that older languages are just as powerful as C#. LISP pretty much invented everything C# does that all the C# developers think is revolutionary and new. LISP has been around since 1958 so you find a lot of LISP developers looking at the C# feature lists and saying "yeah we've been doing that for 40+ years, welcome to the future."
