It might not be obvious from the tone of my post, but I was being rather facetious. I love C++. But like most C++ programmers, there is a bit of a love/hate thing going on. I love that C++11 rocks. I hate that I cannot yet write C++11 on RHEL. The "experimental" nature of the shipping C++11 compilers and the ABI incompatibility with C++98 libraries on Linux make it a bit of a problem for long-term stability.
Tell me again why GCC had to take on all the ABI breakage with the new standard?
