C will NOT run well on a Transputer. Occam does NOT run well on an Intel. If anyone actually built a true Object Oriented Processor, neither language would work well on it at all but C++ and Java probably would work just fine.
Anyone with an iAPX432 box care to try and find out? ;-)
Actually, slightly more seriously, some of the LISP machines of the 80s provided a true object floor. Objects were first-class at the instruction level. LISP apparently ran great on it. I wonder if Java or C++ would work there? I suspect straight C++ wouldn't because it allows too much low-level monkeying about.
