I know that has been said over and over in the past, but how true is that
today? Compilers have had a long time to mature, and I doubt the validity of
the statement 'What works in one C++ compiler often does not work in
another'. My personal experience suggests otherwise.

KDE and QT are written in C++, and the many developers working on KDE apps
don't consider it to be a drawback -- in fact, C++ is credited with making
it easier and faster to develop for KDE than Gnome.

Besides, is there really any significant number of people who can't run gcc?
I use it on windows and linux, and I know that it works on MacOS also.

My apologies for contributing to a flame war.. just having a little fun :)
