I haven't investigated LuaOS, so it is an uninformed answer, but from what I see in the
announcement, if you use it, you don't deal with Java the language, but Java the platform,
ie. the JVM and its library.
I have nothing against Java (well, I find it bearable, in my daily work), but I find
myself more attracted to Scala, a more well thought language, that can remain simple, and
which is strongly typed, which can be seen as an advantage in large projects.
I still love dynamically typed Lua, it is just another face of the coin of programming
(the gorilla and the butterfly).
