Notes from August 22, 2000 meeting between Waldemar Horwat and Herman Venter

General: Herman is readying an implementation of JScript for servers and wants to freeze the language and make it easily interoperable with Microsoft's .NET runtime. Waldemar is concerned about the language's applicability to browsers and retaining the language's dynamism, which he sees as the language's differentiator. He's concerned about the language's drift towards Java or C# because he thinks that there is little need for another language in that space, and the result would be inferior to C# for static programming anyway. Herman also recommends that new server projects use C# instead of JScript, seeing the new JScript as a language geared towards developers already used to programming in JScript.
