SkyOS After months of work, there is now a new complete C++ API for SkyOS, which replaces the old C API. The C++ API consists of more than 150 classes, including support for thread and process information, full GUI support, and gesture support, to name a few. Additionally, news about the LiveCD and some of the technology behind it has been updated, including a few screenshots of the LiveCD in action.

As both a BeOS developer and a Windows developer (amongst other things) let me clarify:

MFC is not an API, but rather a fairly thin C++ wrapper/frameworks around the C API of Windows.

Also, not the entire API of BeOS/Zeta/Haiku is pure C++: there are quite a few things in them that are straight C, even in the GUI API, but most definitely anything that talks to the kernel is straight C.
