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."

Member since:

We've had this discussion before and I told you before that "Holub on Patterns" had a definition of what an "Object" was. Maybe it would be more proper to say that there's a central quality of what OO is, and multiple misunderstandings of what OO is. OO seems to be right next to XML in the "misunderstanding" department.

Exactly. There is no standard definition. What qualifies as OO is somewhat irrelevant to the conversation at hand, however.
