explain in great detail what's wrong with Java as a language, even more
so now that I actually have to USE it. But I will refrain, because this
is a *Lua* list.

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).
