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."

Scriptol is a better choice

Scriptol ( is designed to
manage Xml data and use XUL for graphical user
interface. And using XUL is just what Gnome or
any user interface should do.
And Scriptol also can use C library, no need to
rewrite them.
It may be learned also in some hours...
