First, I don't know if what you say is true. Second, I have no

C++; that's not because I like the language.
Yes. Often, the choice is really only between C, C++ and Java
(with maybe a possibility of Fortran thrown in on the side).
Still, when push comes to shove---I don't really like C++ that
much, but I like the other languages I've seen even less. C++
seems to lack simplicity and elegance; the other languages lack
expressivity. And with enough expressivity, it's possible to
hide the lack of simplicity and elegance.
