The C versus C++ thing has been discussed to death before. Read Linus Torvalds' take on it. He's not very diplomatic, but he is right. In short, object orientation isn't a language feature; it's a programmer feature.
This is a bogus argument for two reasons. Firstly, C++ does not
equal C+OOP. Even if C++ didn't have any
support for OOP, it'd still be worth using because of features like templates, namespaces, RAII and all that. Secondly, an object-oriented design will look much, much cleaner and be more maintainable in C++ than in C.
