XNA Team Blog: What is the XNA Framework?

From the Official XNA Team Blog:


Last week we announced XNA Game Studio Express, which is a product that enables students and hobbyist game programmers to create games using C# that will run on both Windows and their Xbox 360.  The XNA Framework is the set of .NET libraries that developers will code against to build their games.  As we get closer to the beta, I wanted to take a few moments and explain three keys to understanding the XNA Framework--namely, the goals of the XNA Framework, what the XNA Framework is, and what it provides.
* Goals
--Enable Cross-Platform Game Development
--Simplify Game Development

* Layers
--Platform
--Core Framework
--Extended Framework
--Games
... read full details
* Features
--Application Model
--Graphics
--Audio
--Input
--Storage
--Math
... read full details

Futures
We are super focused on getting v1.0 of XNA Game Studio Express and the XNA Framework into your hands, but we are also looking at what our future releases look like.  As I mentioned earlier, we will look at extending the core framework layer by adding additional functionality and we'll look at building out the extended framework area to make it even easier to create games using XNA Game Studio Express.  We will also introduce XNA Game Studio Professional, which will enable developers to create commercial games for the Xbox 360 by using the XNA Framework.  Look for more details about what this means in the coming months.

hmm, I wonder if the XNA only supports the C# programing-language for the .NET Framework?, or if it also supports C++ and/or C programing-languages?, ...if not then it will be a pain to port existing games/applications that already are made in C++ or C, (all original Xbox games are for example all in C++. Maybe a few use libaries that been made in C and compiled with a other compiler).
