C++/CLI: a paradigm too far

Well written (and hilarious) bit on the latest effort by The Evil Empire™ to co-opt C++ into the dot-NETscape. Of course, the original developer of C++ doesn't think much of this new beast... but that's never been known to slow the drive to "Embrace and Extend". Even if it usually turns out to be "Embrace and Suffocate".

Microsoft has been firing off some big guns in support of something called 'C++/CLI'.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
