I won't be much help in the 'concrete examples' area, but consider
To properly compile C++ you need the correct compliment of libraries
in your IDE for the platform & version. As things evolve, you need to
keep separate dev environs for each version of a platform, and
sometimes even the processor type.
Selection/creation of interface elements are usually the burden of the
designer and add to the programming time.
I am sure there are more areas that a good C++ programmer has in his
arsenal. If you write a good discussion paper on this, it would be
cool if you would share it with the list. I know a couple people who
think I am a little nutty for choosing LC, but this would help me
explain the reasoning.
