If you've been reading my blog for some time, you know what I think about C++. It's an horrible mess that managed to be successful exactly because it's lame. It was designed to be a glorified macro system on top of C in order to please the market of C programmers, not scare them with this new "OO" thing but just give them something they could relate to, that they could reason in terms of C. In retrospect, it was not even a good at achieving that (see D for example) but it was the first and in a few years most C programmers were "won" by C++ (not all) so now we have to live with it.
