At least Lisp had a prominent role in the original announcement of the
GNU project:

    ... we plan to have longer filenames, file version numbers, a
    crashproof file system, filename completion perhaps, terminal-
    independent display support, and eventually a Lisp-based window
    system through which several Lisp programs and ordinary Unix
    programs can share a screen.  Both C and Lisp will be available as
    system programming languages.
