I absolutely love C++. I love that you can essentially open a dialogue with the compiler in the code instead of just the runtime executable. In essence you can make the compiler run code at compile time to generate code involving complex compile time computations.

The closest thing C# has is that new code generation feature, which works entirely differently, though admittedly I haven't use it.

Aside from that, no language can do what C++ can do in that respect, at least to my knowledge.

Metaprogramming is powerful.
There's smoke in my iris
But I painted a sunny day on the insides of my eyelids
So I'm ready now (What you ready for?)
I'm ready for life in this city
And my wings have grown almost enough to lift me
