comment Are there design patterns or generalised approaches for particle simulations?
@Pubby: Because you can only simulate what's already understood? You cannot build a model of something you haven't even seen yet.

comment What are the features required for Object Orientation?
@missingno: Something does not have to be unique to some paradigm to be deemed important to distinguish the paradigm. Encapsulation does no more have to be unique to OOP as functions have to be unique to structured programming.

You start off a bit unfair, because DeadMG could not lobby for it due to the simple fact that he had barely outgrown his diapers back then and probably hadn't reached the point where he could properly pronounce "C++". :)

comment Why didn't the C++ Standard adopt expression templates?
A large percentage of the C++ community wasn't able to use the STL to its full potential until 2003 either (I'm looking at you, Microsoft!), and that hadn't stopped the committee to incorporate the STL into the standard.

@R.MartinhoFernandes: That doesn't mean, however, the committee had any resources to spare. (And std::string was changed to turn it into an STL container, BTW.)

comment After writing code, why do I feel that “I would have written better” after some time?
If you look at old code of yours and do not think "darn, why didn't I do it this way back then?!", then you haven't learned enough since you wrote the code.
