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."

First off, HR departments *definitely* don't give a damn about GNOME, but I digress :-).

HR departments don't drive IT requirements, so it's really a moot point. If an IT project needs Eiffel, they better damn well let the HR department know that's what they need, and give them a high level overview of what they're looking for (at previous gigs I've done hiring for, we usually just give the HR folks a list of questions to ask with the associated answers we're looking for).
