General Development A detailed comparison of two novel approaches to developing web apps : Node.js and Opa. Both technologies are open source, allow writing "Hello world" web app in just a few lines and both focus on the Web rather than on generic programming. However, Opa seems to be much more concise, is strongly typed and by design makes most popular security threats void.

I don't agree with what's written on the Opa blog.
Basically, the AGPL license allows you to mix it with GPL code.
So, applications written in Opa can be GPL licensed, which means that for instance you can host the applications online without providing the source code to users. Or am I wrong?
