K, this may be a little offtopic, but its just that lately I''ve been having nightmares about a world where Java rules and c/c++ developers are caged somewhere in a dark, far away place. No, seriously, with some benchmarks that I''ve been looking at, where the performance issua with interpreted languages aint su much of an issue anymore, and for example, the JIT compilers getting better everytime, now the reason to choose c/c++ over jave cannot be performance. So, do you guys think in an inmediate future averyone will start programming games in Java and c/c++ will be relegated and almost buried like asm for instance??? Or its still a very distant future since most apps are coded in c/c++ and proting them to Java would be painful, take for example 3d engines and such I appreciate your thoughts, but remember this aint a flame wars topic, or a "why do I preffer x language over y language" one.

I don''t see why people are so afraid of changing languages...

...just choose whatever is best for what you are doing.

That being said, C++ is going nowhere. It is widely used on many different platforms, very easy to use, and is faster, which is great for speed critical code.

But what is the big problem with new languages?

Highly debatable.

Bottom Line: Pick YOUR language, the one that you like the best, the one that you know the best and get GURU with it! Learn how and why it ticks. Pick up a few other languages just to know any you''ll be fine.

Well, I know Java as well, also php, perl, python, bla bla, its just that I wouldnt like everyone turning to the dark side. eg. In collegue, they wont teach c/c++ anymore since java "is the future" and supossedly c/c++ is for oldies, know what Im saying?

Well, and as I said, the speed issue aint as critical as it used to be, and no, not "lets debate", this isnt supossed to be the point of this post, but rather to hear your opinions about how long will c/c++ last with this new languages "threat".

nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. enough threads have been wasted on this crap. see, for instance, the current java and single inheritance thread. heed the advice of others and pick the language you want...you dont need to proselytize!

Make up your mind.

OT: why are there so many language wars going on here? Don't you guys have projects to work on?
