Years ago I had an interest in this language (which I think is a cool achievement).
There was writing on the wall that it was not a first class citizen, it never got editing support in VS.
I haven't given it much thought for years.
There is a compiler for it in .NET 2. (jsc.exe)
I see that it's slated be in .NET 4 (though the DLR language managed JScript isn't).
I used the language in .NET 1 for it's eval and I see that others are doing the same. (I also see that there are at least a few commercial uses, like Sony in Sound Forge and Vegas.)
Does anybody here have a good handle on the spectrum of people who are using it, the attitude of management in MS and any IDE support for the language?
