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 looks terribly rigid and not very high level at all. It doesn't look like it'd be too pleasant to program prodecurally in, either. I'm wondering why they don't promote the development of a python-like compiled language (something that I happen to be working on, although I doubt many OO fanatics would like it).
