>I love C/C++

It is weird that these usually get lumped together, they are completely different languages.

It's not that weird if you consider the history. With C++, you can drop down and do lower level "C" stuff when you need to. C++ syntax is, with a few minor exceptions, compatible with C. Many, many 90's and early 2000's "C++" apps are written in a simple "C with classes" style.
