For the most part yes, most software is written in C or C++ for modern OS.
Based on the way the application looks you can often tell what it is, but if it is a professional software it could be impossible without documentation on the software.

For a good idea of Programs written in C/C++, look a Bjarne Stroustrup's (The Creator of C/C++) page on Major applications written in C/C++
