Java has succeeded and so has C#
Rilly? Reality check: Java Applets - failure, Java ME - failure, Android - failure (it's huge success only came after NDK release), Silverlight - failure, Windows Phone - failure (Windows Phone 7.x, that is, Windows Phone 8 returned back to C - we'll see where it'll lead), where is this success?
I'm talking about "next C" which means that either it replaces C as program-development language or it replaces it as OS kernel-level language. AFAIKS Java and C# both failed there. Spectacularly.
Sure, they carved niche for itself, but so did many other languages - from VBA to PHP and Perl, but "next C"? Not even close.
