I haven't actually gone back in the thread to check, but if I recall
correctly, Java/Python were recommended over C++ because they are
multi-platform, not because they have GC.  Performance issues as
well as GC were certainly discussed--Java is only slightly slower
and it does have built-in GC, which evidently is seen as a benefit
by some programmers--but I don't believe anyone offered up either as
reasons to avoid C++.  I think the original poster asked
specifically for information on multi-platform languages, though,
which *is* a reason to rule out C++.
