You pretty much can't ever ask something about C++ without all the
haters coming out.

I've worked professionally using only C++ (and a little plain old C)
for 8 years, and the last 6 have been exclusively on Linux.  Ocaml may
be programming nirvana, but it likely won't pay the bills, so I won't
be spending any time on it.
