Re: A choice is a good choice

to choose a language to make it easy for people to *start* developping with the gnome platform, so that all that n00b kids can easilly create an "hello world" message in a confortable way.

Just to clarify, JavaScript application development on GNOME is intended to support applications up to the scale of iOS/Android/Mac App Store-sized apps at least because that's the approximate scale of application that makes sense on the desktop, tablets, and phones. We're not optimizing just for trivial applications.

Good luck building Photoshop Light Room in JavaScript.

Glad you're capable of reading. If Javascript is a poor choice for such a program (granted that I don't even know what Photoshop Light Room is), they can happily still do it in Python, Vala, C, or any other language that is best suited to it.

His reply was obviously to the claim that Javascript is viewed as a perfecly adequate language for developing large scale applications. We know you can use other languages.
