However, the point i was trying to make in my original post is that complexity doesnt come from language, it comes from design.
If you have a really good design for a project, it should be just as easy for a C programmer to implement that design in C, as it would be for a C++ programmer to implement it in C++.
This is just nonsense. The whole point of a programming language is to give you the means to express things more easily. The converse of your argument is essentially that we shouldn't have bothered with programming languages in the first place, since, given the right design, we might as well implement it in assembly language.
An object-oriented design with heavy use of inheritance, virtual function calls etc. will be much cleaner, terser and simpler in C++ than in C.
