I don't look at C++ as C with objects. If anything I look at it as C with templates.

Classes are just fancy structs anyway, and overuse of OO is for the birds, although admittedly I use more OOP than Generic Programming in C++ when I'm coding embedded, mostly because of code bloat issues with GP.

everything is an "object" and everything is related in hierarchies, took a wrong turn.


I have a problem with those people too - particularly if they're calling themselves C++ developers. If you want an object oriented language, learn C#. That's not what C++ is about. You *can* use it that way, but I can also use my C compiler as an assembler by wrapping everything with asm {}.. it doesn't mean it's a great idea.
