Java "Although the .NET vs. Java war is basically over for control of the Windows desktop, where .NET is sure to become the managed language of choice for new Windows desktop applications, there is a new battle brewing. That battle is for the Linux desktop. Now that Java has been open sourced under the GPL, even the most strict of the 'free software only' distributions can start bundling it and integrating it into their Linux distributions out of the box."

Some statically typed languages are introducing inferred types which you might find interesting (although I think you'd need to be dilligent in replacing their use once you're done experimenting). C# is an example, I believe in 3.0 the "var" keyword now means to use an inferred type.
