  • There are many operating system released so far. Many OS are propriety and are used only in small scale. Below are some popular OS and their programmed language.
    Android - C, C++, Java
    Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) - C
    iOS - C, C++, Objective-C
    Linux - Many programming language used, especially C.
    Microsoft Windows - C, C++ and Assembly language
    Unix - C and Assembly language

    So, most of the OS use C programming language and assembly language. Most of them create an operating system using POSIX API. No other programming language is used to create a OS. The C programming language is easy and satisfy all the needs for creating an OS. I don't know much more than this. I got this information from a C workshop.
