In recent years I haven't found a good use case for strict C development except in one case (ESP8266 IDF) due to a broken developers framework.

Even my little 8-bit monsters, while not supporting most of the STL, will handle classes and functors and things like that just fine, with just 4-8kB of RAM.

I mean, several years ago it wasn't uncommon to find devices with less RAM than that. Now you have to go out of your way to find them.

So don't get me wrong - I'm not saying those use cases for C don't exist. But they seem rare these days, and I personally don't tend to encounter them.
