Gnome "I followed the debate about a successor for the C/C++ combination as the primary language for developing the GNOME core desktop platform very closely last month. There has been discussion about a number of options. What I would like to do on this page is give an overview how a probably less well-known language might be a viable compromise as a C/C++ successor. This language is called Eiffel and exists for over a decade. Eiffel takes the principle of Object-Oriented programming to its extremes and, as a consequence, is a very easy to learn language."

It is only C, not C++.

The whole of Gnome is written in C, not in C++ (or perhaps a *very* small amount of C++). Thus the discussion is not about a successor for C/C++, but for a successor of C alone.
