and leaving C++ in a situation where even now you can't write even a modest practical application without third party libraries.


Not quite sure what you mean by "modest practical" but I haven't written any application in over 25 years (at least) in any language without relying on third party libraries.

Wouldn't even agree to that unless who ever was paying the bills agreed to at a minimum a much larger project timeline. And I would use that extra time to re-engineer existing libraries very likely using those third party library API definitions to replicate them.

Certainly 25 years ago I can remember creating my own logging library and implementing a testing framework as two examples of libraries that I consider essential now. I see no point in re-implementing those, especially given that I know the difficulties I had getting just those right then.
