Just a sort of random thought; I think it’s interesting to see the number of efforts to build new languages on old vm’s (NLOOVM). For example:
- Lisp Flavor Erlang (LFE)
These new languages are getting lots of traction. Likewise it’s an interesting (and somewhat puzzling) situation with the CLR. Pretty much anyone working on the CLR is working on C#. Oh there are other languages on the CLR but they have nowhere near the level of interest or penetration of either Clojure or Elixir respectively.
