Better C/C++ Than C/C++?

I am looking for a good systems programming language
that can be used instead of C/C++.  My qualifications
for the language are:

* mature compiler(s) that produce native-code
  binaries (for Windows)
* open source - preferable, but not 100% necessary

Thanks,
Kevin

what's wrong with using C?

Too low level, no built-in garbage collection.

Well the Smalltalk people say, have a small language and a big
library. I assume C's library status beyond that of Smalltalk.


> no built-in garbage collection.
Use the Boehm Weisser GC.

C as a Subset of C++ (or C++ as a superset of C)
Isn't it a lame use of human time and effort to maintain completely separate C and C++ standards? As in the words of Betty White about Facebook: "It seems like an incredible waste of time". Why don't the two standards groups get together and agree on a common specification for the ground which both standards cover? There would still be two separate standards, but they'd both be exactly the same for the common ground. The common ground document could be referred to by both standards instead of being maintained by both groups in individual efforts resulting in...

C/C++ in matlab and matlab in C/C++ ?
Is it possible to read C/C++ code in matlab and the other way around too? Hi, as long as C or C++ are written in text files you can edit them in the matlab editor.

C/C++ in MATALB or MATLAB in C/C++?
Hi I've been asking on the net how to use MEX properly so that I can use C/C++ in MATLAB, but information is not forthcoming. There seems to be a lot on using MATLAB in C/C++ but not the other way around. I understand Mathworks is trying very hard to sell the Matlab Compiler, but even so, why is it SO hard to get information about MEX? Or is it that I've missed something very fundamental, meaning that I'm struggling over something that is actually quite easy? Any thoughts and info would be great.

Hello... I will resume it like this: On the criterias of "complexity" and "difficulty", the C and C++ programming languages are more complex and difficult than Object Pascal for example, so since they are more complex and difficult they are likely to create something like a darwinian filter who don't let the weaker humans among us humans to cross or to climb the social ladder, this is why i think that C and C++ do participate to social darwinism, this is why i say that C and C++ are bad.
