Why can't I appreciate C++ like I appreciate C ??

I believe this lecture: youtube.com/watch?v=YnWhqhNdYyk does a good job explaining a lot of issues people have on the C / C++ demarcation line.

On the other hand, the "right" C++ way of doing things does not really stick with me. It is an odd language. Pretty far from C lineage. I have similar feelings about ObjC oddball.


C is simple and quite beautiful, C++ tends to get messy and ugly.


I'd like to focus only on C but I get skeptical about what my future would be as a programmer!
