Chew on this: there have been over 300 C++ change proposals up for review at the next ISO C++ meeting. So many in fact that Herb Sutter, the chairman and a Microsoft employee, had to prioritize the list so the worker delegates didn't get overwhelmed. C# with its runtime module (read: insecure), born out of a pissing contest with java, will never be able to keep up with C++'s evolution. Even Microsoft has been dumping C# for years now. The C# developers just have bothered to notice it yet. There is absolutely no reasonable comparison in quality over time of the two programming languages where one is open-sourced and the other is guided by 100s of top computer scientists best efforts to gradually improve the language under the auspices of the International Standards Organization.

Knowing this at the outset, I never left programming in ATL/MFC which from my perspective are the wave of the future. And guess what. Microsoft agrees with me.
