Is everything in linux programmed by C

That depends on what you mean by "everything in Linux"? The Linux kernel and most of the key GNU utilities (such as ls, cat, rm, mv, cd, vi, emacs, make) were programmed in C, but an awful lot of other software for Linux is written in C++, Perl, Python, and Java. I'm sure there are quite a few applications (or parts of them) that also still use X86 assembler code.

The kernel is programmed in C and Assembler.

Ok, I was just wondering if it was required that everything be programmed in C or something. Thanks!
