Zing! You're right about AppleScript's oddball syntax, and there's also HyperTalk and ScriptX and Dylan and Sk8, not to mention Objective C! And we could even go back to Integer Basic and the Sweet 16 virtual machine and the 6502 mini-assembler. Apple loves oddball syntaxes, but totally forgets what they did in the past.

But the sad fact remains that Lua's oddball syntax is what keeps it from having better penetration into corporate culture. This is perhaps only sad to me, because I want to use Lua, but I also want to work at Apple. And I'm afraid Lua has not yet come up with a paycheck for me :-)

Given that Apple came up with AppleScript, it's a bit hard to believe that their corporate culture discourages oddball syntaxes.
