Yup. Except it runs on the JVM. And delegates actually do what you want. And the open type system allows you to expose arbitrary resources in a typesafe manner. And it has typeis inference. And enhancements don't need to be imported in every file they are used. But, hey, C# is a pretty good language. We'd be stupid not to take the good stuff in it.

Sadly, your programming language is not ours, but if you stopped using your lady scented language and used ours, you could help us find some bugs.
Look down, back up. Where are you? You're in an imperative language with type inference.
What's in your hand, back at me. I have it, it's a way to add methods to existing classes.
Look again, YOUR ANONYMOUS INNER CLASSES ARE NOW CLOSURES.
Anything is possible when you use Gosu and not Java.
It has an open type system.

Submission + - GOSU programming language now opensourced (wordpress.com) 1

pddo writes: GOSU (formerly known as gscript) that is used in the Guidewire platform has been opened up under the apache license. With the traction that groovy and scala already have, will another JVM language make much difference?

Submission + - Gosu programming language released to public today 3

llamafirst writes: Guidewire Software released the Gosu programming language today for public availability. Gosu is a general-purpose programming language built on top of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). It is object-oriented, static typed, imperative, 100% Java compatible (use/extend Java types, implement Java interfaces, compile to Java bytecode), type inference (very readable code yet static typing!), in-line functions that you can pass as objects (closures / lambda expressions / blocks), enhancements (inject methods + properties, even on Java types!), simplified generics. Gosu has an extensible type system: type loaders dynamically inject types into the language and handle dynamic dispatch. Type loaders dynamically add types from XSDs so XML is easier, and same for consuming remote web services (SOAP WS-I). Guidewire Software's core business is big insurance software and includes Gosu in its products. So, Gosu is new to the public but billion-dollar companies worldwide use Gosu in production for critical systems right now. Gosu is provided via the Apache License v2.0. The language itself is not yet open source, although that is planned for a future community release. Read complete introduction to the Gosu language, compare to other langs, syntax diffs from Java.
