Well, there's dead and there's dead. The job market for C++ is already really bad compared to other stuff. That's ultimately what matters, not how long code based on it sticks around.

On the third party thing, it's that they've just not addressed the issue of portable libraries that are part of most all practical applications. C# has a huge advantage here. If you hire a C# developer, he's going to have used a scheme for doing all those common things because it's a standard part of the language package. In C++ that's not the case.

BTW, I'm doing my part to try to alleviate this problem, though the specifics of it will probably mean it won't be attractive to most folks.

I've open sourced the general purpose half of my very extensive C++ code base[^]
