Perhaps you need to reread the whole mailinglist. Because I've read all the discussions that list regarding the topic. Heck, I'm even a subscriber to the list. C# sharp may be considered a system language in Longhorn, but in GNOME and most of unix, neither C# or Java are considered system languages. You must be new to Unix, aren't you?

There are extremely, and I mean extremely, few desktop applications written in C# and Java. However, I don't know of any core system framework written in C# or Java, at least on Unix, or even on any other platform for that matter. Do your homework before posting here, really.

Finally, neither Java nor C# are considered free languages by the GNU. Let me remind you that the G in GNOME stands for GNU. It will be a cold weekend in hell before either replace C as core system components in GNOME. I'm being realistic, you on the other hand are just wishfully thinking.
