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."

ObjectScript and TypeScript in one week...

It seems the world doesn't like JavaScript. I can understand that, but I like it (not love).

Too be honest, I prefer Node.js as a better JavaScript (yes, I know Node is not a language)...
