If anything, guys, it's not going to be Javascript... it will be some
other child of the ECMA standard, like ActionScript (which interfaces
natively with XML, MXML, and Flash). As for Microsoft and JS, I think
they're finally warming up (a bit) to the Open Source initiative:
jQuery will be included (AS-IS, WITHOUT MODIFICATION) in the new
versions of not only the .NET framework, but in code completion and
documentation for the next Visual Studio developer package.

I'm not so sure that C# was a replacement for Java, either--more a way
to bring C++ (OOP) into the .NET framework while maintaining their new
dynamic of "safe" vs. "unsafe" code, etc...

Related to server-side Javascript... there are MANY languages that
offer JS connectors so that JS can be embedded as a scripting language
in your application.  I'm sure this has been applied to a web
application as well as console apps (in lieu of Lua, VBScript, etc.).

My 2c.
