You should contact them with an example of a pure virtual function with a definition, so they know.

comment Why hasn't a faster, “better” language than C come out?
You won't be writing an operating system in C#. (We're talking about systems programming languages, programming languages that compile to native assembly. anything you can do in any other language, you can do in C/C++/D, but not the other way.)

C++ is just as fast and much more productive to write in. <3
