I don't know about that. There is quite a bit of C++ and MANY other
languages in Gnome. That is one of Gnome's strengths.

Languages are religous issues and the only reason they don't arise in KDE
is because it's impossible to hack in anything other than C++ or Python

When was the last time you saw someone from KDE supporting a project in C?
