makes absolute no sense what you write. gcc == C copiler, g++ == C++ compiler
that gcc and co became implemented in a subset of C++ is a win for the implementation and the people who have to do the job but has absolute nothing to do with the compilation they do.

If you're saying that it's going to become harder to write C-style C++ (it's hard to tell what you're saying, tbh), then I'm not "worried" about that. C-style C++ needs to die in a fire.

I hope that depends on the context. It's fairly interesting seeing both sides of that comment. There's certainly a very alive group of people who believe that C-style C++ is just the best thing ever.

25-30 years ago, tools was my area. Has not been so for a long time so I do not speak the latest idiom. Perhaps I miss understand a changelog I read. Maybe more later.

gcc is two things: it is the C compiler interface for the gcc collection of compilers (g++, gfortran, etc. are components of gcc (in it's second meaning) as a collection of compilers.

As far as something that sounds like: "nothing better to do" - you are quite accurate. I need to get back to my real job and get some work done :-)

I voted C++. It has the right combination of low level and structured programming. Many of the apps I use are programmed in C++.

Python won the title, but there is no strong consensus of what programming language to use. Most compiled programs I use are programmed in C or C++. Python is used frequently for scripts along with Perl and JavaScript. Some languages are much less common than in the past. In the 1980's classes in the RPG language were common. Now, I hardly hear of RPG used anymore.
