Apparently everyone is ok with the fact that the supposedly-open C++ standard is behind a $175 paywall?

They keep using that word. I do not think it means what they think it means...


@woozle from history of programming languages perspective, it does make sense. There's no single entity that owns the standard.

@arjen Then howcome a single entity can charge money for a copy of it?
