Yes, it is. Chess is straightforward but no one knows everything
about chess. (I don't play chess.)

C++ is C and OO. C is straightforward. OO is straightforward
unless you make it complicated with insane levels of inheritance,
overloading, etc. If you don't, and I think you shouldn't, OO is

That only C++ is understood by five people around the globe (you
didn't say this, I know) is lunacy. C++ was the big thing in the
90's, and it is still huge. They rewrote fully functional C
programs in C++, just to be able to tell "it's C++, it's
OO". While that was silly, more than five people were *not* silly
at the same time, I *triple guarantee* all readers of this post.
