Discussion on: Is TypeScript Really... A Language??

I think the real question to ask is if the benefits of TypeScript outweigh its costs? What are those benefits? What are those costs? What does TypeScript help someone achieve that JavaScript doesn't? Who is that person and what are they like? What do we give up for those benefits? Might I want to pay that cost for those benefits maybe?

Most semantic debates have no useful outcome.
