    Java is not modern C. It's a piece-of-crap language that tried to improve C++ and failed in all possible ways.
    Just mention garbage collection and all C/C++ programmers will get a chill down their spine.

    Have you had a look at D, or Go lately?

    You mean Go, Google's pet language? Seriously? Let's see if it matures first.
    D was a while since I looked at last, admittedly. Back then, the syntax, at the very least was somewhat awkward. But admittedly, it is worth looking at again.
