C is called C because it came after the programming language B.
Some people find that kind of thing funny.

C++ is an incremented C Which would be D...
It was built to be an enhanced C with objects.

Incidently there is also a D programming language but thats beside the point.

C# is just microsoft being fucktards. It has similiar syntax and was created to aid MS in the fight against Sun Microsystems Java. As to why they chose C, probably a marketing descision.

I've been writing in C for some time, being the first language I learned (after english, anyway) and I'm wondering if there is a big, overwhelming reason I should learn C++. Is there something that I cannot do in C that I can in C++? Or are some things just much easier in C++?

the main reason to learn c++ is: object-oriented programming

And in response to this, Sun sold themselves to Oracle? - Somehow, I think the fight might have been over long before C# came on the scene :P

C# is nothing to horrendous. I'd agree it's not a language anyone who wants to be serious about programming should have as their one and only option... however knowing it certainly won't dash your employment chances these days.

But, I certainly wouldn't rely on it alone - Anyone who is programming in C# should learn C/C++ concurrently or beforehand.

Just my opinion.

My opinion is that Thetan can't spell the word 'asshole'.

Both, or at least uncertain aspects. For some programs that are large enough to utilize OOP reasonably, you will use C++. C can be just as powerful and quick though.

Now, this doesn't mean C++ is easier. In fact, it will most likely be trickier learning the extra syntax for OOP and such.
