And why not Groovy or Scala instead of Kotlin? TIOBE index shows Groovy(17 today used to be way below) getting way above Kotlin nowadays while the Kotlin gets lower (39 used to be about 35 I think).
Also I played with Kotiln and dislike it as do some other people that use JVM stuff not only me, so why would you assume Kotlin would be better choice?
I really need someone to explain to me what's so great about this language that Groovy or Scala couldn't provide. The only thing is Google and Android in my opinion.
