First of all check this list:�

1. What makes Lua interesting out of all those above massive list, out of all other language features ? Can you ask yourself ?

- Is there any virtual machine open source exist ? Where you can stand and run on top of that virtual instance run your own application ?
- Is there any freedom for virtual machine to cross over Flash/Java/Silverlight offering and restricting developers freedom by limiting etc etc ?
- Is there any project in future you will face which require more advanced, but you cant do it with Lua ?
- Is there any planing or road map even exist for this with Lua, do they care even ?

2. Coming to Lua means lot of common sense to all of us

- Can we build our own tools which can�separate�us as freedom of code ?
- Can we build our own tools which can allow us to be independent�architecture�developer, reaching the world of Browser and�Virtual�?

There are my questions in my small brain, bugging�around, but again why can we not build a Lua virtual machine, why should we take it as first impression to negative orbit ? In positive track, it�guarantee�how strong it is for any kind of development challenges.

Thanks & Regards

Think carefully: Do you think you were the first person to think
of this?

I'll give you a very condensed comment on your idea. This topic
has been repeated, repeated, repeated... <barf>

Technical merit matters very little. It's mainly business and
marketing. If you can't see that, you should think about it rather
more carefully.

Lua is cross platform. I advise you to check the canonical
sources. Do some proper research... (not the first time it has
been suggested to you)

Lua is crossplottform, it just isn't web browser integrated.

A Lua-Plugin for major Web Browsers allowing websites to be scripted
in Lua would be very nice. Its just by far no trivial project even for
a single browser like Firefox and we just have no one
doing/maintaining it. If you search you see there have been a few
attempts, but none pushed through.
