Would it be better to just stop using C/C++ instead of making them safe?


For most new development yes; but for performance sensitive apps GC pauses aren't acceptable and the cost of porting billions of lines of legacy code to a new language is beyond prohibitive (see COBOL[^]).
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?
--Zachris Topelius
