So what is Angular then? Angular seems to me to be more like an ORM for the view where there's dirty checking of the model and then update events are dispatched to the external system which is the DOM instead of the DB. Is there something similar in the GUI toolkit world?

Angular is very similar to the MVVM style of GUI programming that's popular in Microsoft's XAML-based libraries (e.g. WPF, Silverlight, WinRT and now UWP). Which I think is interesting because that's where they ended up. Modern windows programming doesn't involve writing WndProc functions anymore.

Angular is Adobe Flex Builder reborn. In fact it's created by the same guy

Hmm, KVO perhaps?
