C/C++ don't have, by itself, a garbage collection, you must be very very careful about when/where you release memory.
In C/C++ you don't have a clean/portable way to define a new thread and there isn't the beautiful synchronized
keyword for mutual exclusion.
I could go on for many other issues.
In other words, if you are having, say, N
troubles learning/programming in Java ...... in C/C++ you will have at least 40ŚN
