I've only ever dabbled in C++ and I had little use for it. From the early 90s until 2002 I used ANSI C (on OpenVMS).

On my PC I have a few C/C++ compilers, but on three of my OpenVMS systems I've installed C (not C++) to play with on occasion.
DEC C V6.0-001 on OpenVMS Alpha V7.2
Compaq C V6.4-005 on OpenVMS VAX V7.3
HP C V7.3-009 on OpenVMS Alpha V8.3
(I don't have C on my Itanium server. I may need to address that)

The only thing I currently use C (not C++) for on my PC is an experiment in using ODBC (using a book from 1999).

Oh, and of course, I use the "C pre-processor" for various manipulations of my C# code.
