Seriously, is anyone still doing any real development in C besides
kernel programming and embedded world??  Maybe I was living under a
rock, but I always had an impression that the industry moved to C++ in
the late 90s and stayed with it ever since.

The last bastion of C was open source Linux/*BSD programming but I
remember the time when C was a truly universal programming language
used for _everything_ including games (e.g. Doom).  Maybe I just miss
the 90s.
