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."

Let's be realistic here. One of the draws to open source programming is that it's a fun way to learn new skills that you can bolster your resume with. Skills in C, C++, Java, and the .NET languages are in demand. Eiffel is not.
