C (with some C++ and even less C#), with some Assembler tossed in here and there.

There was a page somewhere with a listing of source code filenames for various versions of Windows (presumably grepped from the beta debug versions), though I can't remember where I saw it. Windows, especially the kernel, is written mostly in C, with a few libraries and applications written in C++. WDF is written in C++, but exposes a C API. Windows Vista and higher use C# for the Explorer shell.

Additionally, lot of Android code is written in Java.
