VM Based, JIT, embeddable, type safe, very permissive license (unlike Java or Mono). I can see this taking over mono as the "scripting" language of choice.

Just out of curiosity whats the difference between Mono's license (MIT/X11) and Dart's License?

It's not MIT/X11, read:

LGPL does not allow embedding in, say, a PS3 game. Engines that use mono (like Unity) purchase special commercial licenses.
