C++ is useful for programmers that believe in object oriented 
methodologies.  Some things are easier to do in C++ as well.  It all 
depends on the programmer.

You seem to favor assembly languages.  I've found that many people into 
assembly never seem to get OO and therefore languages like C++ and Java 
make no sense to them.   Assembly *can be* fast but its not portable.  
C was created to make unix portable.  C++ was created to add OO 
features to C.  (as was objective c)
