General Development "Everyone seems to have a replacement for JavaScript - Google even has two. Now Microsoft has revealed that Anders Hejlsberg has been working on a replacement and it has released a preview of TypeScript. TypeScript is open source - Apache 2.0 license - and a superset of JavaScript. As you would expect from a Hejlsberg language it incorporates type checking, interfaces and lots of syntactic sugar."

I see.

Thanks for explaining your point of view.

In my particular case, I've learned OO in multiple languages besides the OO model that is known to the majority via C++, Java and similar languages.

Dylan, Self, CLOS, Modula-3, Oberon, BETA, Eiffel, Sather, Smalltalk, SWI Prolog, were a few languages that showed me different ways of doing OO. Not all of them to my liking.

I was lucky that my CS degree had a strong focus in language and compiler design.

When I said "not a proper language", I meant "considered by some developers as not a proper language".
