GeneralWhy I like C++ PinmemberCDP18026-Nov-12 5:20 
I have been turning away from .Net lately and looking for alternatives. I don't want to have to rewrite everything when a certain company heads into a different direction once more.
 
My answer is C++. I always liked its flexibility to allow you to do very low level programming just as well as very high level programming. And today I stumbled over this video[^], in which Bjarne Stroustrup answers two simple questions.
 
Now I know why I like C++ so much. Thanks, Bjarne.
