General Development "I am pleased to report that the GCC Steering Committee and the FSF have approved the use of C++ in GCC itself. Of course, there's no reason for us to use C++ features just because we can. The goal is a better compiler for users, not a C++ code base for its own sake. Before we start to actually use C++, we need to determine a set of coding standards that will apply to use of C++ within GCC."

For me *personally* the FSF is inane. I don't need to read about *how* inane it is, or how it has decided it's okay to use more modern programming paradigms. It's all very 1990 for me.

If you don't want to read an article on Osnews, you can try and contact the person whom posted it and ask them to remove it.
Or maybe you can make some sort of deal with Osnews which hides articles the AI in Osnews' supercomputer thinks you don't like.
...In the worst case scenario you can install Greasemonkey for Firefox and remove the article your self.

There aren't any other options I'm afraid.

The FSF, through GNU, holds the copyright to software that is more widely used than any other code on the planet, despite the 90% market share of Windows on the desktop.

gcc is a prime example of very pervasive GNU software. gcc is the software that compiles more code for more CPUs than any other compiler, bar none. This applies particularly to embedded CPUs.

Inane to you, maybe so, but to the IT/Electronics industry as a whole the FSF is critically important. Irreplaceable.
