comment Why are there so many string classes in the face of std::string?
@DeadMG - Visual Studio is not the only non-compliant compiler in the world. I work in video games and we are often working on custom compilers for unreleased hardware platforms (happens every few years in the console cycles or as new hardware appears). "Fairly recently" means today -- Right now certain compilers don't support templates well. I can't be specific without violating NDA's but I am currently working on a platform with custom toolchains where C++ support -- especially template compliance -- is considered to be "experimental".
