Boo and Lsharp
Presumably Lisp# and Boo are .NET based languages that ty in with C#.
Boo is a Python like language (less verbose than C#) and Lisp# (Lsharp) is a lisp based scripting language. Has anybody played around with these? Are they useful?

I've seen them before but I haven't played with them – I don't have .NET on this system but I'll be installing Mono in a few weeks so I can play with it over easter.

That seems to be the main advantage it has over Lisp/Scheme to .NET compilers like BigLoo but I think you'd have to use the language to get a feel for it.
I can't find this anywhere in the documentation but if it's dynamically scoped I'd stay clear. That's up to you but I'm not a fan .
