Linux "In the first part of this analysis we looked at how the polymorphic side of object-oriented programming was implemented in the Linux kernel using regular C constructs. In particular we examined method dispatch, looked at the different forms that vtables could take, and the circumstances where separate vtables were eschewed in preference for storing function pointers directly in objects. In this conclusion we will explore a second important aspect of object-oriented programming - inheritance, and in particular data inheritance."

Actually, what's really sad is that C++ is pretty much the compiled-to-native language that has OO built-in. After using Java and C# and Perl and Haskell (and I haven't even touched real OO languages like Smalltalk or Modula), I feel for those people who still have to use C++. Too bad D is still immature.
