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."

I agree with you. It sounds to me more like a joke than a serious "RFC".

From the article:
This language is called Eiffel and exists for over a decade
Well, acording to the link to Wikipedia, it is two decades.

Eiffel takes the principle of Object-Oriented programming to its extremes and, as a consequence, is a very easy to learn language.
OOP != "easy to learn" IMHO

It seems that all requirements for the language of choice are fullfilled by C/C++ so, why change?
