No and NO.
Microsoft supports python and F#. If you want you can compile python code into windows binaries in Visual studio now. We also are growing our support within Visual studio for python and adding more data science tools that support both F# and python. Python Tools for Visual Studio
F# is NOT a .NET solution for python. We will continue to support both and we are focusing on improving our support for F# + C# across all platforms (Linux, Mac , etc.. )... I will say that F# performance is very impressive, recent versions are as good as native code in some cases. Although often performance really depends more on the developer than the language.
Internally however the data science guys seem to favor R for most stuff.
Oh and if it isn't obvious .. I work for Microsoft, although my opinions are my own, not those of my employer
