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 suppose it's nice to force programmers to do tests, but I don't like being forced into things."

And that's why programming is still behind. No one wants to be "forced" into doing what needs to be done, and at best have to learn the hard way, and at worst never do.
