Although I'm relatively new to the concept that C++ is too difficult to 
use, I would concede that with certain mindset and priorities Java may 
be a valid choice. Not so if one is willing to expand  knowledge about 
programming and find a complement for Python.

Where I can't agree is that C is a poor language. You may prefer Unix 
was written in Pascal but C is still an excellent language, if no longer 

C++ continues its philosophy of granting as much control as possible to 
the programmer. Whether it's a good or bad thing is debatable and 
depends on purpose for which you're using it.
