Hello Michael & all,
Let me add some my notes to lots of thoughts here. I think Laszlo
has lots of cool features, and I fully agree with most of the
positive comments posted earlier. Coming to disadvantages, I see one
really major: no strong typing. This makes refactoring really
difficult and produces plenty of bugs that could be easily
discovered otherwise. Actually this makes it close to impossible to
implement large applications using Laszlo (at least in my opinion).
Another concern is poor interoperability of LFC and pure-AS
controls/components, but this has already been covered I think.
