"Wrong. Sorry, but you are very wrong. The reason the IT industry codes in C/C++ is because you can write fast code (also deterministically fast code "
But C/C++ is definitely not the only way to do that. Ada, Pascal, Modula 2 are just a few other options. The aerospace sector is very happy with Ada and that is exactly because the language forces you to operate in a much cleaner way than C/C++ allows you to do.
I agree that the GC-based languages are a regression, because of their non-deterministic runtime (or the requirement to pre-allocate the total set of objects that will ever needed).
