+ - JavaScript is the New Perl

theodp (442580) writes "'People are thoroughly excited [about JavaScript],' writes Lincoln Baxter. 'However, I’d akin this to people discovering Perl during the advent of C and C++ (mirror). Does it work? Yes. Is it pretty? Not by a long shot.' Baxter adds, 'While I do like both languages, JavaScript [is] just waiting for the next technology to come around and make it look like Perl does today: pervasive, but lacking enterprise adoption on large applications.' So, is JavaScript is doomed to become the next Perl?"
