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."

you kids just early adopters and you write more code than you maintain because your new fangled languages change every year ;) .

That is a really stupid, stupid comment. Common Lisp, Smalltalk and Eiffel all exist longer than you. Lisp is the second oldest language around still in use, only loosing to Fortran.

See, that's one of the problems with the FLOSS communtiy. People think they can code, or think they understanding programming because they picked up an O'Reilly book on a scripting language.

I was born in 1984, not 1985, cute. It was a joke, hence the wink ;) . And, it's "losing", not "loosing".

That's extremely rude, given that you know absolutely nothing about me.
