I came across this today, found the idea interesting (especially with my PureBasic background):

If it sounds too good to be true...
V is for vaporware.
Reviewed and panned as a panteon money scam.
Stick with PB and watch for jai and zig releases.

Golang and Python and inline-assembly are my only alternatives to PB these days. Unless I go to old hardware and use some old language like Fortran or COBOL or C or ROM BASIC.

I think type safe languages with hardening are the future. The days of competing syntax are over...

I ran into Phix while reading about V. Phix seems like a good alternative to Go, but unfortunately without the backing that Go has. (Just Phil...)

Microsoft are having a look at Rust to replace C/C++.
It seems Brave is moving in that direction too.

I started working through the Rust book earlier in the week and so far I like what I see.

it seems to be a REPL language something like python or lisp, they do have their place, but it has always been a turn off for me.
