That is great.

This as well, but I feel large side effects of these choice is being
hidden to the people that make them: the cost of maintaining
all of these different languages in a same system.

I want to stick to C both because I like it (matter of tastes), but
also because it is the language the system is written in.

If all we had was OS written in Lisps for hardware efficient at
executing Lisp, I guess I would learn to love Lisp and write
everything in Lisp for not raising the complexity of the system
while writing programs...
