    Hi, my name is Anthony and i doing a search to find opinions about which language is better for Linux development. or Open source Operating system.

    Now hold on a second. You want to know how secure the Linux kernel is so that you can go in and start improving it? But you don't know what language it's written in?

    Explainging My Question


    I Know that Linux was written with C , C++ , ect . what I really want to know is another opinion from experienced programmers, to know if we need to use an specific language like C, or just a mix of language, for specific, task. I do not know the details in all process of a development of a system, I just want to know some general information ans also some details about the language used for system programming.

    If you wish to modify a C program, you must do so in C. If you wish to edit an English manuscript, you must do so in English.
