I think Java is probably easier than C++ too. C++ has the problem that it is (more-or-less) an extension of C, and so all the good symbols were already used, and you end up with things like :: all over the place. And using -> all the time is extremely tiresome and typo-prone. It also muddies the cle...

When I am actually making a living I do, yes.
