It's Funny to me ...   way back when I learned C and Assembler and Basic and Pascal and COBOL

then Perl and other stuff  

I saw the early C++ and i *NEVER* cared for it.

I loved C

later I saw C# and it was like "Wow this rocks!"

to this day I have the same feel, C is good and C# is good but to me C++ is a mess.
