I have a C++ background but I like C# plenty. It's great as GC'd "managed" code goes.

I'd like Java if it was designed better and was more byte order agnostic though.

It will never be C++, and when using it I often find myself missing this or that feature, typically where templates and related are concerned.

But C++ is *expensive* to code in, no matter how good you are. I don't have testers working for me. I don't have a salary I'm drawing for this stuff and there's only so much time I want to spend on any given submission. I may or may not submit C++ stuff, but I don't code a lot in C++ lately because I've been working on some compsci stuff that's already well solved in the C++ world with source code everywhere.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
