"Less common" is really subjective.

I'd say F# as my favorite functional-first functional programming language, and D programming language as a "better C++ than C++".

If those are too mainstream, then I'd say EZAsm for 68000 - but that's so long ago I only have vague happy memories.

Agree 1000%

Shit, that sounds great. I need to learn D.

D overview to get you started. There are 3 compilers available, GCC (gcd), LLVM (ldc, the one I usually use), and from the creators of the language DMD. They're available for most platforms.
