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."

eiffel and mono

I think the only way eiffel will be used for Gnome development is if someone writes an eiffel compiler for Mono. There is a .NET one but it is commercial.

Eiffel is very impressive, although the syntax is a little nutty. I like ruby's syntax design better.
