The word "final" in this post ought to clue you in... I'm not a huge Volta fan after playing with it. That doesn't mean that you will dislike it... in fact if you are into using a language other than C#, you might totally dig it.
That's the short of it (if you have more interest go on over to http://labs.live.com for more detailed info).
My final thoughts
Another issue I have with Volta is that I don't like having both server-side and client-side code living in the same project... I know someone might ask me about my ASP.NET Web forms preferences, but that is more about server-side code generating client side code. With Volta we have the ability to generate both server-side and client-side code side by side in the same project. I just think that will muddy the waters some.
I do like the cross-language nature of Volta. I think that is a good thing, but I like that Script# compiles right to JS and Script# .NET (IL) assemblies (instead of compiling to IL and then convert IL to Js... it's probably just semantics for me though). Script# isn't perfect either (BTW). We'll see how Volta evolves, but right now Script# just feels more natural to me.
