C++ won't survive the next 10 years

I am a time traveller from the future and I must tell you that C++ won't
survive the year 2007. The world will soon be tired of C++ programming and it
will be outlawed, banned worldwide, and FORTRAN and Basic will be the only
authorized programming languages. Members of the underground who secretly
program in C++ and are caught will be arrested, buttraped, and exterminated.

No you lie! We will all be using dynamically typed languages with
garbage collection in the future. Because manual memory allocation is
too hard and static typing sucks.

Clearly the future belongs to Lisp!

No problem with that, until the compiler name doesn't starts with
Micros* or Visual* ;o)

In the future, is there a C++ advocacy newsgroup,
or perhaps one for all languages?

If so, please use it. We don't want to fill the future
archives with too many opinion flame wars.

What will they do the cobol programmers? Will they be hunted down and
recursed? What happens to the bank programs? Maybe they'll self
destruct, or automatically convert themselves to Basic for "ease???" of
maintenance?

Regards,

I doubt it by 2007 but maybe by 2015 C++ may have gone but only because
C# and Java will have replaced it. Ironically C90 will still be in
widespread use in embedded systems
The world will soon be tired of C++ programming Yes but only because other languages are more popular.
and it
will be outlawed, banned worldwide,
Hardly...
and FORTRAN and Basic will be the only

FORTRAN and BASIC don't exist on that many platforms.

How that is a sensible idea..... :-)

Imagine running the successor of Windows running under a basic
interpreter! *shudder*

That is - if Windows still exists. But may be they can stand their
ground with VB.

:DDDDD
