SkyOS After months of work, there is now a new complete C++ API for SkyOS, which replaces the old C API. The C++ API consists of more than 150 classes, including support for thread and process information, full GUI support, and gesture support, to name a few. Additionally, news about the LiveCD and some of the technology behind it has been updated, including a few screenshots of the LiveCD in action.

If anything c++ as a language allows the compiler to be more "anal" and also allows the code to be more self documenting than 'c'. However it requires a bit of experience and a ton of discipline to make this a reality.

Compilng c++ using max warnings and keeping away from templates (stl), and multiple inheritance should result in fast compiling, fast executing and very portable code.

Templates really aren't that bad, but c++ is hurt with scoping issues where closures aren't allowed, which would be awesome for writing understandable stl adapters.

If there only were a "perfect" language...
