This will cause some controversy I'm sure.
Not being a strictly client-side developer, I still wonder what this "going beyond the browser " means. It sounds like it's an adoption that would better be avoided.

TypeScript operates along the same lines as JSLint. So I guess if you think those types of developer productivity tools are evil, you should stay away from them.

Yeah, TypeScript [typescriptlang.org] basically sounds like a CoffeeScript [coffeescript.org] alternative.

I think that's subtly different to CoffeeScript, but having used neither of them, I can only guess what's better!
