Submission + - Bjarne Stroustrup on C++ and why software sucks

prostoalex writes: "MIT Technology Review interviews Bjarne Stroustrup on C++ and why modern software is so bad. Some memorable quotes on why software is bad: "People reward developers who deliver software that is cheap, buggy, and first. That's because people want fancy new gadgets now." On problems developers might have with C++: "Often, when people have trouble with C++, the real problem is that they don't have appropriate libraries — or that they can't find the libraries that are available." On some developers frequently complaining about C++: "There are just two kinds of languages: the ones everybody complains about and the ones nobody uses.""
