*YOU* are full of bullshit.
C++ is a horrible language. It’s made more horrible by the fact that a lot of substandard programmers use it, to the point where it’s much much easier to generate total and utter crap with it…

So I’m sorry, but for something like git, where efficiency was a primary objective, the “advantages” of C++ are just a huge mistake. The fact that we also piss off people who cannot see that is just a big additional advantage.

    @martikyan reportin' for duty!
    Hey I'm not gonna get triggered, C++ has its flaws. It's basically a huge complex machine that craps on your head most of the time but when it works...oh man.

    @BigBoo Linus Torvalds' reply to an email asking why Git isn't rewritten into a more efficient language like C++. It's a true gem.
