An Interview with Bjarne Stroustrup

This is the latest interview of Bjarne Stroustrup. He discusses on several issues. It starts with the history of C++. Then it focuses on features of the upcoming C++0x standard. It ends with a discussion on future of the language. In my opinion, C++ is the best and will remain so for a long time for systems programming. It seems that Bjarne Stroustrup is also aware of that and focusing on incorporating features like multi-threading, file system manipulation etc. to the language standard. It was interesting to know that C++ was used in complex projects like JSF and Mars Rover, though it may not be the only language used.
