> you can finally easily construct anything you want in the “enterprise language” (you don't need these expensive C++ programmers to create “components” now! yay!) and language even tries to detect and report most problems—what's not to like?
Yes. Massively reducing the amount of rope the programming masses used to be given to hang themselves with: definitely a major progress for the human kind. Really don't care if this requires double or triple more hardware to run since that's much cheaper than education.
As the experienced C++ developer you seem to present yourself as you should be happy because I think a rising tide lift all boats - even the C++ boat. I mean, even while C++ (or any other expert language) is losing market *share* there will still be increased demand for them if the overall market is growing fast.
