Problems With STL: What Drove Me To Create Something Else

There is nothing inherently wrong with STL! It's a very robust and heavily tested solution that proved itself to be a good companion to programmer needs, BUT there is nothing ultimate about it. It's just one IMPLEMENTATION of "data structure & algorithms" concepts, not perfect like everything else in life, with its own qualities and defects.

Conclusions

Clearly STL did not fully fit what I wanted: something complete & beautiful, standing on natural unbreakable order and coded on principles of simplicity and elegance. Therefore, I decided to reinvent the wheel and build something more beautiful instead!
