Response to: Why not JScript?

Um, I don't see how JScript is useless? VBScript (and VB for that matter) only supports Object-Based programming, and through COM you cannot derive objects from one another anyhow. So, I don't see how lack of inheritence makes a difference when it comes to interfacing with COM libraries such as WMI, ADSI, Office, CDO, DAO, ADO, etc.

FYI, The newer JScript.NET (ECMAScript ver 4) supports true inheritence, but that's a different topic...
