Well, you got to know about ObjC (seeing your post about GNUstep). As for
Java there is
a C++ native interface. However I should relativate the term "mix freely" a
bit. While most
stuff works, a nested template class probably wont work yet.

But it gives you a bad library. Why isnt GNUstep written in C if its so
great? Why does only
a minority actually like glib? Or even better, when C libraries are so great
why dont we
build a desktop around wine?
A c++ library with C compatibility layer gives you a good library and
languages that have only a primitive native interface such as perl.
BTW, I think GNUstep is great because its not plain C :)
