Same here too, but this has mainly to do with cluelessness... Most
professors & research personnell can't do anything useful in C/C++. Most
have heard of the weak things in C/C++ so that they can preach other
languages, such as Java.

Java is good, but will never be *the* language for doing all tasks that
C/C++ can be used fo right now.
