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."

Only in the sense that "objects" (aka structures) are used to represent widgets. If you want to stretch it that far, you might as well call hello world in C object oriented, because you're 'sending' the puts message to the string object.
