I can say C++ is utter crap because I use it and I hate it.

And there are plenty of us that also use it daily, and don't find it to be utter crap. Though I am not aware of your situation, so you may have a job that requires you to use C++ in areas where it's not the best option. In that case, I can understand why it would be painful. I get to decide which tools I use, and lately, I tend to prefer C++ for the low level bits, C# for the application level, and Python/Lua for scripting on top of that. This makes the easy things simple and the hard things possible. Taking C++ out of that mix would only cause me more trouble, so I find it to be a useful tool.

Linked list with pointers? is this 19th century or what?

No, but I would expect that anyone graduating with a degree in Computer Science would have some familiarity with the fundamentals of programming, and those would include pointers and basic data structures and algorithms. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be the case for a good portion of graduates anymore.
