comment Is Clojure, Scala and other restrained by the JVM vs CLR
I just wanted to mention Mono since being cross-platform is being touted as such a strength for Java - mono-project.com/Main_Page

comment Why isn't the Stab language more widely used?
I realize these but my question was specifically about 'technical' reasons. Plus, part of why I would expect Stab to be more popular is because it minimises so many of these. Stab uses the Java libraries as they are in the context in which they were intended. Stab features are pretty much a pure superset of Java. Java programmers have very little syntax and very few concepts to grok to learn Stab. The toughest concepts (like lambda expressions) are well described in many C# materials that are readily available. Your points make it more likely that a language like Stab would get chosen

@Robert - Actually, I have heard of Nemerle. You are correct though that I should probably use it more than I have.
