Jint versus S# (Script.NET)

Both of these are great, and I don't know which one I'm going to ultimately pick, so I'm genuinely interested in the strengths and weaknesses of both of these interpreters. I very much doubt a row will break out for anything like this, but obviously I would like things to stay civil.

From what I've investigated, it would seem that S# is about 1.5-2x as fast during execution on my PC. But on the other hand, I love the way Jint keeps a record of previously 'compiled'/run code in memory so that it can be referred to afterwards in other separate code runs. I don't think S# can do that (perhaps someone can confirm that?).

Also, Jint has this message board. That's gotta count for something!

I have been using S# in a commercial application but had to look for something else. S# implementation is buggy and its development has stopped long time ago. Jint is the only hope for all of us needing a script interpreter for .net.

Update: s# github shows some recent activity so maybe the project is alive after all. Haven't checked yet if it's more production-ready now.
