I don't understand why some schools would teach Java instead of C/C++?

 
Because when they last started evaluating their language of choice for CS101 it looked like Java was going to conquer the world. In another 5-10 years I expect to see JavaScript take over. Perhaps more importantly it sidestepped the epic holywar between adherents of the MSVC++ and GCC compilers. When I was a freshman ('99); the net result of this was that the "official" compiler for intro C++ classes was Borlands. WTF | :WTF: In all but one of my more advanced C++ classes we were allowed to use the compiler of our choice as long as it was specified; the exception was my OS class where the binaries we had to use for all the parts of the OS that we weren't writing fill in the function code for were only available on via the Universities Slowlaris shell server.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
