This is more a vote to see how the Notes development community might feel about Notes development moving away from LotusScript towards Javascript.  With 8.5.0 IBM introduced xPages and it seems a lot of IBM's focus for Notes application development is going to be on the use of this design element.  Xpages do not have any support at this early stage for LotusScript and given the way Xpages are implemented it is difficult to say if this will happen any time soon.
The LotusScript language has become a little outdated and needs work to make it competitive with languages such as Java, C#, and VB.Net.  There are a lot of ideas on this forum for this... Would you rather see IBM focus its attention on expanding the server sided Javascript language supported in xpages (promote this idea) or would you instead like to see significant redevelopment of LotusScript and support for Lotusscript in Xpages (demote this idea)????.  Personally I am on the fence but very interested in which way the yellowverse may go.
If this idea does not make the hot list I will assume that the Notes development community is ambivalent about the programming language used.
