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."

What do you mean by "object-oriented"? If you're talking about the C++/Java style of OOP, then this is more of a restriction than anything else.

Well, THAT's the thing: it's truly object oriented without any 'violations', unlike the aforementioned.
