While we wait for my Groktalk to appear (editing is really hard and timeconsuming and Scott is a hero) I have been getting a few requests for “the seven things C++ has that C#” doesn't.

  • Can generate native code and work with native types from other libraries
  • C++ interop – the fastest and easiest
  • Templates and generics
  • Deterministic destruction
    • my absolute favourite, I must say
  • Optimized MSIL
  • PGO for native and managed code
  • .NET Linking (from within the IDE)

I will try to do individual blogs on these when I can. In the meantime, you can peruse the deck and remember, it's for a ten minute talk: Why Cpp.ppt (94 KB).
