comment Is “convention over configuration” not violating basic programming principles?
Don't overanalyze the examples, they are just examples. The first one is just an example of a convention, the last one is an example where convention is a good thing. The Perl example is an example where too much conventions (implicits) are a bad thing (IMO, I should add).

comment moving from Windows to Linux
"Everything else comes naturally"? Of course it comes naturally, you've been doing it for 10 years. Linux isn't worse, its different. And now that you're 10 years older, your brain doesn't learn new things as easy as it used to, and all those things which are different become something you have to unlearn. Approaching the entire thing with "Linux sucks" is going to make your life miserable.

Hm, maybe I should bump up Go on my list of languages-to-learn.

I'm not talking about indentation, but also things like line-wrapping and where to put spaces in conditionals/expressions. The reference implementation should include a tool to "reformat" a program to conform to the standard formatting rules.

I wished formatting was part of the standard of a programming language, such that programs are not just "valid" or "not valid", but have a third state as well, "valid and well-formatted".

Quite possible, but how can we tell?

You seem to be treating this as a boxing match, where we have to determine who of C and C++ is going to win. Fact is that both C and C++ is out there, and not acknowledging the problems in the tools you work with is not going to make you a better programmer. Yes, C programmers bitch about C++ and vice versa, but trying to select a winner is meaningless.
