But it wasn't. This is a long time in coming, but it doesn't make it
useless.

Oh well, better later than never, or something, I'm sure.

Sorry, this is kind of useless.

This should have been done in 1999.

Take care,

Fascinating video from the man himself.  Interesting to hear his
voice.  For those who don't know, Bjarne Stroustrup is the man who
invented c++.  The language was originally called c with classes but
then, he changed the name to c++ because in c, the ++ means
incremental addition.

Enjoy,
