General Development I like this one: "By definition, a program is an entity that is run by the computer. It talks directly to the CPU and the OS. Code that does not talk directly to the CPU and the OS, but is instead run by some other program that does talk directly to the CPU and the OS, is not a program; it's a script." Here's the other eleven.

Yes, but the people who are really proficient with C++ will use the STL, which has no overlap with C, because C simply does not have the facility.

Lets agree on one thing - proficient and intelligent people will use the best available tools and abuse their strengths. This is language independent.
A proficient and intelligent person will take a turd and make diamonds out of the carbon it it.

Problem with C++ is that it's so wide that finding a group of people that think the same way about C++ is virtually impossible.

I haven't had to do a crazy thing in C++ at all. Have a look at Qt. Aside from the MOC (which translates to standard C++ anyway), there is nothing crazy with Qt.

He said allows, it doesn't mean that everyone is doing crazy things. Though C++ developers tend to veer off quite often into crazy stuff.
