Idea of using C++ is not so crazy.  Haiku is programmed largely in C++.

C++ is more strongly typed than C.  I have some familiarity with Ada, which is 
(I believe) more strongly typed.

I am very limited in my ability to test ReactOS because of no place to put it.  
Hard drives are partitioned GPT, and booting from USB stick is problematic from 
what I read.
