Personally, I hate C.
It's clumsy, horrible and has hardly any features compared to C++ which is still being updated even to this day. It doesn't support OO programming at all, unlike C++.
And learning C will mean you have to unlearn it if you plan to learn C++. And it has an absolutely terrible, crap syntax. For these very reasons, I gave up C and started on C++. I haven't looked back AT ALL.
It's 30 years old also, it was developed to use on the first UNIX based systems I believe.
Master of common sense. If you don't like it, stop reading.
