Please, defend your position and convince me that I should use C for OOP instead of C++ with some solid arguments.


You misunderstand me, I'm not trying to convince anyone to use C. You can use whatever you're happy with. My original point was about Java and how it's perceived to be the only viable solution in the area where it's deployed, when in fact you could use plain old C and achieve much better performance with smaller memory footprint.

Era of hackers has ended. Now is an era of sunday programmers and web developers ... You think those can do quality C? ;)
The most common misconception is that the market needs more programmers - nothing could be more wrong ... it's the bad programmers themselves that create the need for more programmers .. an endless loop of bugs, incompetence and shitty design.

Well, I guess most people couldn't use C with the same productivity, but, yeah, it could be done.

Once again, I apologize for jumping to conclusions, because the whole thing might be misunderstanding on my part. I am not 100% sure, because it's 3am over here. ;)

Anyhow, there are plenty of more suitable Java alternatives for web dev. C# comes to mind, for example. C wouldn't be high on my list of alternatives. Just because it can be done, does not mean it should be done.

I withdraw from this conversation and I hope that, ranting aside, I made some valid points...

Thanks for taking the time to respond. ;)
