As someone who briefly worked on a PS3 C++ compiler my colleagues would love to joke:
There are 2 problems with C++:
1. It's design, and
2. It's implementation.
On a more serious note when you even have committee members acknowledging they only use a sub-set of the language, then maybe, just maybe the language is too freaking complex.
Other committee members admit there are many problems with iostreams
C++ has become over-engineered.
If the C++ would deprecate crap such as
and other verbosity then maybe the language would become simpler.
