[TECH] The C v C++ Flame which I have been looking for this time from *Linus*

I was doing a Google search with keywords "C++ sucks" and found a flame on the git mailing list. Linus was totally angry by some guy who suggests that "git should have been written in c++ rather c". See the flame here

I have been looking for this kind of stuff from long time when I advocate that why I always stick to writing code in things like C,Perl and shell scripts. I feel that I have total control on the program if I write code in C in which I can deal with the virtual address's but unfortunately as the abstraction increases you cannot have the control on the actual code. I guess its not only me but *You cannot convince any hacker to use c++*
