Java might say it has strong typing, but I'd call it strong inconvenient 
typing. C++ has strong convenient typing - just like
Java 1.5 (as far as I've seen it).
I will party when 1.5 gets mainstream - typed collections and 
polymorphic numbers/Numbers at last! If we wait another
5 years you'll hardly see any difference with C++ at all (except for 
memory management of course).
