    thanks for the heads up.

  2. Ferris Beuller says:

    C++ is a joke its nothing but a pigs (and MC++ adds more pigs mess to it) mess of MACROS, DEFINES and crap.

    C++ is becoming bloated with kludges and patches.

  3. Ferris Beuller says:

    Remove the preprocessor.

  4. Ferris Beuller says:

    Lack of properties on C++, you have to kludge them in using Templates or just a pigs mess of get_ and set_ methods.

    MC++ adds even more junk.

  5. Ferris Beuller says:

    Templates. yeah , more pre processor junk, not proper types.

  6. Ferris Beuller says:

    Constructors, yeah we like the way you can set methods in ctors in C++, its Pig ugly.

  7. Ferris Beuller says:

    unnamed enums and structs, lovely all good for readability. Lets encourage it more. Pig Ugly.

  8. Ianier Munoz says:

    Nice. It’s interesting to see how Bjarne has changed his point of view about OOP over the years.

  9. Ferris Beuller says:

    C++ in any form is too risky for business now.

    C++ == Kludge++

    They need to start again, oh wait, its called C#.

  10. C++ Advocate says:

    Whoever was the dumbass ranting about c++’s apparent shortcommings, get a clue.
