I'm still waiting for the awesome language that will finally kill C.

I don't ever hear of languages with the same goals / targets as C getting developed... are people putting real effort into languages like C any more?
 
Rust[1] has very similar goals, it's the best candidate to kill C I've seen yet. Though it's going to take a long time for it to have the universal support and tooling of C that the article mentions.
