And note, for the record, that it's clear that he's using a tiny subset
of C++ (he's using more of what would have been called C with Classes
rather than full-fledged modern, Standard C++, with exceptions and
templates), eschews generality instead of specificity, and works in
single-user projects only.

The people chiming in about C++ use full Standard C++ with all its
advanced features and have worked in small teams.  It's not just small
apples vs. larger apples, it's apples vs. oranges.
