C++ Frequently Questioned Answers

As many of you probably know, I am not very fond of C++. Recently I've came across an excellent set of texts, which explicitly name many faults of this language.

Let me point you to a great means of procrastination document: C++ Frequently Questioned Answers. It tries to provide alternative answers to questions from C++ FAQ, describing how faulty the design of C++ is. It is quite a long text, so if you are in a hurry, the main points are summarized in Defective C++.

It is not very happy read, especially if you have already used C++ for some bigger project. I wonder how e.g. KDE can survive using C++. For what kinds of projects would you use C++? I think plain old C is better for the system and performance critical stuff, with some interpreted language like Perl or Python for everything else.
