Tony Arcieri, creator of Reia, recently brought up an interesting topic on unifying actors and objects. Talking about Scala and his disliking towards Scala's implementation of actors as an additional entity on top of objects, he says, it would have been a more useful abstraction to model all objects as actors. Doing it that way would eschew many of the overlapping functions that both of the object and actor semantics have implemented today. In Reia, which is supposed to run on top of BEAM (the Erlang VM), he has decided to make all objects as actors.
