What about writing some app/applet stuff in Ada?  Is there a 
GTK+/Ada binding?  Ada's got the best strong typying, compile time 
checking, and readability around (plus standard-defined interfaces 
to other languages).  You can even write in Ada and generate java 
byte-code...  From what I understand, the new C++ standard pretty 
much screwed up the exception/std_template/auto_ptr stuff (ie, you 
can't use them the way they should be used).

(just trying to start another flame-war... ;)
