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."

Oh but we like having you here bytecoder (seriously man, register!). You make good points.

This is a topic that I think people don't actively think about until it's presented to them; because most programmers care more about writing it rather than using their pet language.

It should be discussed. It really should. It helps in clearing up a lot of myths too.
