Submission + - C++ And The Return Of Native Code (infoworld.com)

snydeq writes: "Fatal Exception's Neil McAllister suggests that the new version of C++ signals renewed interest in old-fashioned native binaries. 'Modern programmers have increasingly turned away from native compilation in favor of managed-code environments such as Java and .Net, which shield them from some of the drudgery of memory management and input validation. Others are willing to sacrifice some performance for the syntactic comforts of dynamic languages such as Python, Ruby, and JavaScript. But C++11 arrives at an interesting time. There's a growing sentiment that the pendulum may have swung too far away from native code, and it might be time for it to swing back in the other direction. Thus, C++ may have found itself some unlikely allies.'"
