Why C++?  Why not Objective C?

        Also, C++ is intended to be all "type safe" and crap like that,
        trying to be all pristine and nice and well-defined and all set
        up to protect everyone from themselves, and what language do they
        choose as a stable foundation for this language? C! The biggest
        free-for-all "I'll just pass a pointer to your mother around and
        fake everybody out" language on the planet.  It's like giving an
        AK-47 to a monk, shooting him full of crack and letting him loose
        in a mall and expecting him to balance your checking account "when
        he has the time."
