Java's C++

I would sell it that way to non-technical executives but not to anyone else.

I worked with someone who's a personal friend of Odersky and he's confident that Scala won't turn into C++. He described him as "way more scrupulous than Stroustrup".

It is too late for that.

I have this sneaking suspicion that Scala has blown past C++ and is taking aim on Perl.

I agree, but use that as a sell for why I think it's reasonable to use for business. It usually follows a technical discussion of it's benefits.
