comment Is modern C++ replacing C#? Is Microsoft pushing developers to adopt C++?
@DXM You are right and wrong at the same time. I don't know c# (I barely touched it for automation and plugins in visual studio). But at some points in time perl was my favorite language and I also like php a lot. Still, being primarily a c++ developer, I prefer c++ for most tasks. Reasons I use something other than c++: web programming (I choose obviously php), scripting where I don't want to create compile app I'd use perl (as long as it's not supper simple task that can be done with bash/awk/sed whatever unix spaghetti). Overall, with all of them it's a pain to debug compared to VS debugger

I don't know why they decided to drop native c/c++ support starting from windows phone 7. Since that day, windows+windows mobile became from 90% major platform for our company shifted to 10% importance. 10% is only because of best development tools (visual studio), otherwise we don't make anymore products even for windows desktop.

No clue how hardcore c++ devs with 10 years of experience could chose over c++. Personally, I prefer c++ for most of the tasks. At the same time I don't do that much of gui work and have never even had opportunity to learn c#. Whenever I do anything in bash/perl/php I spend half of time googling for snippets which I don't do when I work with c++.
