Re: C++? no thanks
People who love Java hate C, C++ too.

C# is an answer to Java.

Then poeple who love C, C++ hate both. Mostly the speed, size of the programs.

You can do everything with C++ if you know how to. It's not for beginner. There is no clean up if you leave a mess. A poor written C++ program can crash the system.

C# is slow, can't get direct access to hardware. Hard to do system programming with C#. Drivers? Impossible.

Re: Java and JavaScript
BlooklynNellie, Aparently not. Curt reported on the case a few months ago. That's why I was wondering if he knew what happened. As per the votes the petition had at the moment Curt wrote the article and it was published it didn't have enough. I am assuming the petition failed. It was just ridiculous. -Susan

Re: Java and JavaScript
LOL. Did whoever tried to ban it not realzie that they have nothing to do with each other (besides some C genes in their family trees)?

C++? no thanks
I switched to C# from C++ more than 10 years ago and have never looked back. C# handles generics much better than the kludge that C++ uses to implement them. Not having to mess with header files is worth the switch alone. And multiple inheritance in C++ is a big drawback; I don't use it, but it's a problem when other programmers do and you try to use their code. I won' go into my other gripes about C++. I'll just say that C# is what C++ (and Java, for that matter) should have been.

What about PL/SQL?
I realize it's proprietary to Oracle ... but Oracle has a reasonable slice of the world, yes?

Go Swift
This is pretty much the list I expected to read. The only surprises were Swift and Go. I've seen Go gaining popularity over time -- I didn't expect it would make a "most employable" list.

Java and JavaScript
Curt, what ever happened with that petition to ban Java and JavaScript? I suppose it didn't go any further; am I right? -Susan
