General Development "For years I've tried my damnedest to get away from C. Too simple, too many details to manage, too old and crufty, too low level. I've had intense and torrid love affairs with Java, C++, and Erlang. I've built things I'm proud of with all of them, and yet each has broken my heart. They've made promises they couldn't keep, created cultures that focus on the wrong things, and made devastating tradeoffs that eventually make you suffer painfully. And I keep crawling back to C."

C# also has faster build-run-debug cycles.

And as for debuggers... Visual Studio blows C out of water - pause any time, IntelliSense to go back in steps, check variables, call stacks. Aaaand Paralel Tasks windows debugging threaded application. Unless gdb improved on debugging more than one thread.
