Language wars

Is it just me who’s loving this whole Ruby vs. Scala debate going on lately? So far it shows that:

  • No language can prevent bad code.
  • There will be never an ultimate language, but there will always be people to defend the one they are using.
  • Java (the language, not the platform) is dead.

I know it’s not the first time we have a language war and I have to confess I was missing that a little. Years ago it was Visual Basic vs. Delphi, then C++ vs Java, now it’s Ruby vs. Scala.

And I have to confess: I’m already curious to see what will be the next one.
