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."

"this entire thread is retarded."

Aside from the obvious (that Eiffel on GNOME probably isn't the best idea), this has been one of the more informational threads I've read/participated in on OSNews in quite some time. People actually managed to stay somewhat civilized...wow, we *can* all get along.

And +1 to bytecoder needing to register.
