I didn't mean to this to be a discussion about the effects of and how much you should care about your appearance.
I was hoping to discuss some of the stuff Stroustrup explained in the presentation.
So, I'll start: I found it interesting that he complained that people have inheritance relationships just for the heck of it. Are people actually misusing inheritance this badly and this often so as to get mentioned by Stroustrup?
Also, love that std::vector pwns std::list, I've experienced that myself.
I let the implementation make trees if it wants to. I only ever need std::vector and std::map to fit my needs, and I've used std::stack when appropriate but the default template parameter is to use std::vector anyway.
