      It may seem trivial, but the OTP team is chipping away at making the Erlang syntax a bit dev-friendlier with this major release. With R23, integers can take the syntax: 1_000_000 to represent `1000000.’ Considering how much back-lash Erlang syntax gets, the more efforts like this, the better.

        If the syntax is somebody’s primary concern why not use Elixir instead? For me the Erlang syntax makes more sense than Javascript for example. I think Joe really got that right. Expressing so many things so easily. Pattern matching baked into the language the the core, ease of use of recursive functions. I could go on and on. Do people get hang up on the syntax that much?
