"I've been working with Lua recently - can't say that I like it very much. It has some remarkably academic features for something that's used so commerically, but it's a complete pig to work with and it's hard not to sit and frown at the (in my opinion) ugly design."

He has the right to have an opinion, of course, but I regret he doesn't expand on what design flaws he found. Such out of the blue remark isn't useful / constructive / credible. Even less when written after a day of programming...
