This doesn't explain why C was used for Gnome - hardly an assembly language
To quote from your own web page, "eventually C was used to write large
programs (word processors, computer algebra systems, computer-aided design
systems, etc). C is a totally inappropriate language for large projects: it
lacks all the aspects of a high-level language, which means that the
programmer has to design a work-around for all of them".
Surely by these criteria C++ is more suitable for application programming
