All the time, and avoiding recent features.

Hence the iOS effort.

I've used C++ in commercial capacity in 3 places. All had massive
compile time problems, fragmentation, inability to add
third-party code easily, and were massive debt machines.
I would never, ever start any effort in C++ as it's a sink of
money compared to D. It's just much more expensive.
For small tools productivity can be 2x less with C++.
I think Java is fine when you don't use native. I don't use it,
but friends are and it seems competent AND fixes long-time issues
with C++ such as unsigned.
