I just wanted to get in one last reply before this thread might get locked. So are you basically saying that everything core will be programmed in C because it is how the win32 api is like, and that you would only consider C++ code if it can be proved that it is more efficient/effective than if it w...

We prefer C over C++ because for the few applications we do include, the differences between C and C++ become trivial because we're using the win32 API. The current shell will likely be abandoned once the new shell, which is written in C, can compile and work. I don't understand what you mean by th...

So am I right in assuming that graphical features like GUI's are programmable in C, but its much easier for developers to program it in C++ and the overheads are not so bad if its for a graphical shell. Also the reasons why you prefer C over C++ is because the win32 API was designed for C and you do...

I hope a dev or somebody knowledgeable could answer this question for me because I'm not too sure of the reasons. I unders...
