Well, I know a lot of people who wouldn't have started with Crystal Space
if it WASN'T written in C++. But anyway, it is all a matter of taste. Personally
I think that C is not very suitable for such large projects. It is too difficult to maintain.
(But granted, this comes from a person who ones wrote a 68000 assembler program
which was 100000 lines of assembler, and I'm not exagerating :-)

games software industry engaged in a tremendous effort to stamp out piracy,
and there was Wobbler. Currently, Wobbler was in front.
