It’s precious when Java developers start complaining about how complicated the type system is in Scala. After all, it wasn’t until Java 5 came out that developers working with a JVM were given the opportunity to stop pulling lazy Objects out of the collections API and subsequently casting them into their respective types. What’s worse, given the outrageous number of organizations living on Java 1.4.2, not to mention the lazy and unmotivated old guard who refuse to properly type their code, it’s not uncommon to find an enterprise development project where nobody’s even heard of a ‘for-each’ loop.

Scala's type system *is* too complicated. I really wanted to like Scala but I just couldn't get there.
