C++ can't do anything remarkable that can't be done in any other language

And no programming language can do anything remarkable that can't be done in assembly.

That is just BS. There are lots of programming languages that can perform magic on schedules, budgets, quality, maitainability and a slew of other areas that ASM or even C++ can't dream of.

I was merely showing how his argument against c++ was absurd, because he was basically implying that what can be done in c++ can be done in c - which is true only to the extent that you ignore all these parameters you mentioned.
And comments like "there are lots of <things> that are better than <other thing>" without any form of substantation are pretty useless.
