Continuing from the previous question.

C created a famous programming language D, initially intended as a way to teach students structured programming. But it also became popular for production. D, named after a french mathematician, was the primary high level language used in the development of E.

E was an iconic PC that was, unfortunately, a commercial failure. Some say that E was named for its creator’s daughter. (Incidentally, one particular B from A is primarily found on E and its descendents :) )

The GUI of E was influenced by another iconic PC in development at that time – F. The creators of E paid a visit to the place where F was being created and spent a while figuring out how to make things work.

D, E and F, please, for one point in total.
