Why would coding in C# be any faster? If you use libraries like Boost, C++ apps can be coded pretty fast provided you start out with a solid design.
C# and the.NET library is beautiful and a joy to work with, and there are countless of projects where customers have been stunned of how fast I was able to produce results. This was on the other hand almost never the case with C++.

The latest (6th) edition of the C++ Primer Plus by Stephen Prata covers C++11.
Yes and on a side note, anybody know a good C++11 book?

We don't know the entire story behind the failure of the .NET rewrite of Windows (Longhorn); poor vision and management certainly had as much to do with it as .NET's inherent limitations.

There's absolutely nothing esoteric about templates, maybe you should look up the definition of esoteric programming languages...
esoteric template language,
Funny to read that out of the mouth of a .NET supporter - name the redundancies in the C++ standard library than...
poor, confusing and redundant standard libraries
Niche status? You do realize that almost everything sold by Microsoft (including Windows, Office, Visual Studio and so on) is written in C and C++?! Not to mention that the industry reinforces it's focus on C++ as "the free lunch" is over,,,
In short I don't understand the hype around an old broken language that has been slowly but steadily on its way to niche status, just because it gets a few features other languages have had for years.

There are two possibilities with that post - either it's written with a lot of humor, or by someone who does not wish to be identified. Either way, it is an amusing read.
Allow me to doubt the theory of Mr. "user480729" who has only one post on stackoverflow and when Larry Osterman, developer at Microsoft, calls it a conspiracy theory.
