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."

Why is a trabant better than a ferrari?
Simple!! If doesn't allow you to drive with 300km/h against a tree. With the "top speed" of a trabant being around 70-100 km/h, you still have chances to survive if you made an accdient. And it costs you a lot less to repair it.
Guys really, with c, there is a lot of stuff you simple can't do, and which would force you to write a lot more code instead of automatic code generation.

And would say about D programming language?
