* Bjarne Stroustrup in comp.lang.c++
| Java takes the part of C++ that I like the least - its syntax derived
| from the C syntax - and not the parts I consider most important - the
| ability to do data abstraction without compromising efficiency and the
| ability to write user-defined types that are treated on equal footing
| with built-in types.  See "The Design and Evolution" for a detailed
| explanation of these points.


if we work harder, will obsolescence be farther ahead or closer?
