i always believed that a large part of it was about "keeping their jobs".

i'm not talking only about VS2019 or C++. Windows grows because of it and you see the same buttons with the same functionality changing places in the same Form of say, System Properties.

then the UP one directory button disappears in Vista and 7, but then it's coming back in 8. they move the GUI to a heavily 3D multicolored look and then back to 8 colors and win3.11 looks.

it's progress alright, but i don't know if it's in the right direction.

the chances to start a C++ project that lasts for 5 years and at the end of the project to claim you know modern C++ are getting close to zero, much less to claim you know some other rapidly evolving language.

"if this frameworks are so great and helpful why do we need another one? why didn't the last 27 frameworks solve the problem? they didn't so you need the 28th framework, right?" - Jonathan Blow
