@dandago2_twitter regarding the API and the "feel" of akka.net. You need to understand that in order to be allowed to carry the name of 'Akka'. One of the rules we need to adhere to is that we stick to the JVM akka api as much as possible.
They (Aaron and Roger) could have created a port of Akka in .NET and implement their own API, but then they would not be allowed to call it Akka.NET.
And the api compatibility brings advantages as well. Its easier for people who know Akka from the JVM to start working with this. And most if not all documentation from the typesafe Akka website is applicable to Akka.NET as well.
Regarding the Create constructor pattern. I have the same opinion as @Horusiath . Its more a matter of taste for me.
Source.Queuewhich work like asynchronous queue.
