Ok, Christian, I don't really get why your reply is so negative. At least it feels that way. Anyway, I'll try answer your concerns, however off-topic.
I didn't say I can't have the necessary knowledge of C# and/or Java to do whatever my job would require, I just say that I didn't invest any time for that yet because there was no such necessity. Nor had I found that to be a valuable investment to do that on my free time.

Also, I didn't claim to be a C++ expert, I am way too far from that. If you are looking for some real C++ experts, I can suggest you to read the boost mailing lists systematically for a few months, and you'll find them for sure.

Somewhat offended,
