As a Singularitan, I recognize that super-AI may turn out to be impossible. After all, we don't have a theory that proves it possible yet. However, in the case that it is possible, the creation of the super-AI will be the single most important event in our observable universe. Thus it is worthwhile to spend some effort in getting it right.

I've used C++ since 1997.

Don't care much for the STL. Its syntax is nice, and I don't mind the size overhead much, but the compilation time is noticeably increased the more templates you use.

C++11 has a bunch of syntax improvements, like "auto" and inline class member initialization. I think I'll use it for most of my future programs.
