By being the go to language in game engines, GPGPU (NVIDIA now 
designs their cards to be ISO C++ friendly), the language that is 
used in Metal shaders and IO Kit, the rewrite from React Native 
for Windows and OS X taken up by Microsoft, what gets called from 
Java/.NET when extra native help is needed,....

Now if the metric is having GUI toolkits in C++, like those from 
the 90's, then yeah it pretty much lost it, with Qt, WinUI and 
wxWidgets being the last ones standing.

Or doing stuff like CMS. Hope no one is doing them in C++.
