@Charles: I like AND and I am not saying one is better and the other must die.
I did not realize that this will be sold as a new language. I like it better that it will be sold this way. We all know C# and Java is/.was based on C++. The problem with C++ is that it is committee driven and you cannot really drive a vision on making it better. It really just gets more crap added that rarely gets used by all the compiler vendors. If you want portable reusable C++ code you avoid this problem. Reading Joe Duffy's Blog I think he has the right vision.
