>>While it's true that writing OO code longhand in C might take up more characters than the same program written in C++, most of the time we spend coding isn't spent typing. The difference is immaterial. Personally, I'd prefer C++, but there's something to be said for writing in the linga franca, C.
It's got a lot more to do than just the typing. It's all the type safety and general model. GObject is a PITA and deserves to die a quick death (to save the rest of us poor souls from using it).
