    It's nice that they added things to PHP which has made it catch up with 2005

    From the first look of it, I think it will be a huge flop. The bulk of the PHP programmers couldn't care less about static typing and generics. They probably did it because they have a C++ background and didn't want to be bashed all the time by "oh, you 're using PHP" comments :)

    Static typing is not such a big problem IMHO.
    I would rather see that dollar sign removed from variable names, that one is truly annoying. :)

    Congrats, they reinvented the wheel .. AGAIN. The syntaxis is the same as all other langs, only the name they gave it is more corny then all the rest. so nothing new to see here, move along..

    This is interesting. It looks simple like php, but i hope they make it big, only the name is kinda disappointing personally.
    But this could be useful though.
