First Look at Apple Swift
Doesn't every new language do this? They take good things from other languages and apply it to theirs to work with the target ecosystem? Maybe it's not, but this seems to be held in a negative light. Maybe that's because they could have just used another language?
@ITcrackerjack you are correct. This is InfoWorld so not super up on programming.
Definitely the big thing is..... Why a new language.
