Because not everyone is programming desktop GUI apps, and not everyone hates OOP.

C++ provides an object-oriented programming model for C environments. C is Assembly language with a better syntax. So, it means you can do more of hardware programming easily, registers are available etc. C++ was created by Bjarne to include "classes", because he had experience in Simula, which was object-oriented.

C was not, so C++ was created to support that, C++ was called, "C with Classes". If you need hardware control and are only an OOP geek, then you use C++, otherwise you use C.

Despite my answer, this question is childish and immature. If you need to know if a language is needed to be learnt of if you should use it, know its history! That will answer all of your questions. Just a friendly reminder, when I started to learn how to program in 2011, I heard C++ was fading away, Java is future, I also heard Windows Forms will die soon, and WPF is future. None of that happens and these news are caused by some idiots in computer science who have no idea what they are saying.

Quote:
The creator of C++, Bjarne Stroustrup, has acknowledged that Simula 67 was the greatest influence on him to develop C++, to bring the kind of productivity enhancements offered by Simula to the raw computational speed offered by lower level languages like BCPL.
