F# works quite well with the rest of .NET, so it gets along well with OOAD,
It's a native .Net language and interesting to play with.
The first step in learning effective F# is to forget everything you know about programming unless you learned Prolog!
Learned Prolog, way back when Borland had a Prolog compiler and IDE, I found F# was similar in some respects with OOP added on.

Tried to get into "real" FP a couple times but I haven't found a single tutorial starting with something FP does better than, let's say, OOP or even procedural. On the other hand, functional concepts are creeping into languages like C# where I've been using them extensively. Heck, even variable.dosomething(parm).dosomethingelse(someotherparm) is, as a matter of fact, functional.
Language Vb.net and C# have Linq which provides these OOP languages with FP. Switching from a OOP language to an FP language is another mater. I keep saying my next project I'll write in F#. but my designs always wind up using OOP constructs so I stick with my OOP language and use all of its FP features.
Specifically I hate all of you who thought it would be a good idea to push an update - which I've been studiously ignoring because I know what will happen - without permission?
I use a set of documents - DOCX and XLSX - on a regular basis. For example, I keep "Thought of the day" as a DOCX file so I have a bunch ready to go, and can check that I aren't duplicating (too much)
So I pin them to the taskbar list.
And despite loads of reports from me and others who find it irritating, the Taskbar icons and their associated lists (both recent and pinned) are destroyed by your updates. Every. Single. Time.
That's irritating, but when I decide to go for an update, I can take a screenshot, and restore my lists after the update.
When you push a Elephanting update on me and don;t elephanting ask first I can't. So I lose them. Which is not just irritating, it's elephanting annoying. OK, I can work it out using folder contents and some of them via your "recent files" - but since DOCX and XLSX, OTT, ODT, and UncleTomCobley files are mixed in there without any care for the app that created them it doesn't help as much as it should.
Go and die in a fire.
