ATL/MFC which from my perspective are the wave of the future


How can a pre C++98 library be the wave of the future?

While I do like C++17, there is still lack of support for desktop and web development, save for a few hobby projects here and there. I thought that with cloud computing people would look to C++ for (micro)service development and such, because of the smaller memory footprint and faster processing times (which translates to lower costs). As for desktop, Microsoft (IMHO) has failed over and over and probably aren't interested in it anymore. So I think that until that changes, C++ will remain a language for specific server-heavy programs.

I hope I'm wrong though, as I like the language more than C# or Java or even F#.
