My argument for C++ is that they've spent years and years creating a cathedral to containers, but they've ignored the most important thing, which is that, unlike C#, you can't just install C++ and write realistic applications. You are immediately into a world of having to select third party tools to do even a fairly modest realistic program, even a back end one without UI issues.

That's a vast advantage that languages like Java or C# have over C++, and it's just not addressed at all, and probably never will be. So C++ remains fractured in a fundamental way, where any given developer might come into a company and never even have seen half the tools they are using.

I've spent most of my life addressing that problem, so I know what it's like to have a full featured, tightly integrated system in C++ that is very much like what C# has. And it's a whole other world.

But the C++ community has been this way so long, that they actually will react negatively to a system such as mine and start yelling about not invented here syndrome. They consider it the normal state of things to have to piece and part together a system to write a real program.
