If the only choices are C, C#, and C++, you might be right. However, the
research on programmer productivity that I'm familiar with suggests that a
given programmer writes about the same amount of code (usually measured in
lines per day), regardless of programming language. Consequently, choosing a
higher level language that allows programmers to achieve more with fewer
lines of code, can lead to substantial productivity improvements.
