Metal Shading Language, CUDA, working on LLVM or GCC internals, 
the Android or Windows stuff that only has C++ bindings 
available, Arduino, ARM mbed, high integrity computing standards 
like AUTOSAR, macOS drivers, game consoles SDKs, Swift, .NET and 
Java runtimes,...

There are plenty of places where it would be nice to use 
something else, but C++ is the name of the game, and adding extra 
layers to debugging is not getting the buy-in from most folks.
