    I’ve been using this new version for awhile and have been pleased. I got the fastest download I have ever gotten on it. (800 Kbs. =D ) I love it though.

    Also, why do they focus on the fact it is C++?

  2. Keith Says:

    I’m not quite sure why it’s focus on C++. Two of the main reasons may be because, C++ provides a small file size, and optimised in terms of algorithms and routines in the programming compared to other programming tools, i.e. Java.
