I've got a system here that is made in a dynamic language, and extends well over 100k+ lines. Developed by more than 25 developers. That shows that dynamic languages can achieve the proper goal. The idea that static-typed languages are the best solution is just plain wrong. Just as dynamic-typed languages are the only and best solution. To me, a hybrid would probably be very satisfying. In some cases you want a static behavior, in the others you want a dynamic behavior. Sjoerd
