    forget about C++, forget about D, F# is newer and thus better (given the idea that seems to permeate this industry that newer IS better by definition).

    Pah! Stop right there!
    That is all it takes to tell me it is a "crap" language.
    And it is far from better than C++ since it's limited to the dotNet Framework, thus limiting where it can be deployed.

    Well, of course I knew it was sarcasm, but you couldn't have picked a better language, could you?

    Ok, so C++ gave Object Oriented programming, right? Does C++0x give any such major thing? Or am I getting it all wrong? :P

    C++ is a language. It evolved from C and added OO among some, yes.
    C++0x is not a new language, it is an evolution of C++ - a new version.
    And it does add some significant things.
    Variadic templates, concepts, static asserts, explicit conversion operators, lambdas, rvalue references, among others.
