The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

they are similar are they not? i asked this before at a forum for a game add on (what a place) and the writer of the game add on said they are very similar but there's just a few differences between them. what are those differences?
sorry if it's a dumb question but i'm only at page 100 of my Learn C++ in 21 Days book then i hear some guy say "C is the mother of all languages, you should learn it first"
Well, c++ gives you a little more features (classes and function overloading mainly) but it is a slower than just plain c.
Since C++ is just an improved C, you can use plain C and compile it using a C++ compiler.
The basic thing C++ adds to C are object oriented programming constructs. These are things like classes, methods, inheritance, and overloading. These can be very useful for GUI programs, but are also often a source of bloat.
