I always felt like C is the better designed language when compared to
C++. Of course C misses many features of C++ and C also has some
badly designed features (preprocessor, header/include system, function
pointer syntax, array [n] not attached to the type but to the variable
identifier). But among some useful features C++ also adds much more
noise on top of the already existing C misfeatures: ugly template
syntax, iostreams/pipe syntax, operator overloading for controversial
operators, c++ namespaces, multiple inheritance, ...

Of course C has limited means for abstraction and therefore is not
suitable for certain projects. But the language feels 'cleaner' imho,
C++ sources files using templates and similar features are often hard to

But OTOH I'm an electrical engineer as well ;-)
