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."

It is very high level, excellent libraries, purely object oriented, design-by-contract. Eiffel forces you to program in a disciplined manner and the code tends to be very clean.

Wonderful language pity that its creator (Meyer, ETH Zurich) doesn't wish it to be free, gnuEiffel please pleaseplease!
