As for the (l)ongoing language debate I think we need to allow for
people to both use Java and C# (or any other language) that has a big
enough community around it to ensure that bindings are kept up to date
and follows the development of the rest of the desktop.

I agree with that, but you’re answering a different question: “what
languages can you write third-party apps in?” My question is, what
technologies and languages do we use to implement the desktop core
itself. We have to make a decision here, if only “stick with
C and C++.”
