You know I could say I like c++ and I should like c++ - but I don't!
I just wanted to get that off my chest. Very Happy

That's alright. There will be more options in Syllable in the future.

I have mixed feelings about c++. Writing C code in an object orient language is nice..but the sintax sometimes bothers me to no end...ocaml ruby etc are nicer to develop with imo..

C++ is great, as long as you don't try to use every single feature available. Thankfully Syllable uses a nice subset, basically no more than classes and polymorphic methods. Not even exceptions are heavily used. Templates are, thankfully, non-existent.

Oh I really was not knocking the language. Very Happy I was just being facetious. It could be worse - the os could be written in assembly. Very Happy

C++ is good for crate a GUI aplications but i testing a Icaros Desktop (AROS operating system) and they have LUA language and they create a GUI with AmiLua.. Its very interesting use pascal like script Lua language to create gui apps. maybe will be good create SyllLua engine for create a gui dialogs in syllable. I know that for this is Rebol in Syllable, but why not do lua, too?.

Because it's more work: basically double. But anyone else can do it if they want Lua. When we start our REBOL/ORCA integration, it will be designed to lower the effort to add extra languages.

Active Oberon is a Wirthian language and a derivative of Pascal and Modula. It is super safe and fast, also well researched at ETH Zurich, the university where Niklaus Wirth professed. Check out this video about Oberon OS entirely written by the Oberon language.

You probably aren't around anymore to see this old thread necro-bumped - but you seem to have interest similar to mine. I love these small niche operating systems (Syllable being a good example). My first programming language was Pascal, so Wirth's stuff is interesting to me. I used an Oberon variant for a while. It was the Bluebottle/A2 variant. I found its browser to be a bit primitive, but I tooled around on the internet with it.

They now have another experimental operating system at Eth Zurich, but it's not Wirth's, since he retired. Well - I think he's "semi retired" and doing some FPGA stuff on his own. Anyway, the new OS is called Barrelfish, and is only for 64 bit machines.
