Use the one that you are more familiar with. To program portable in C
needs much more experience. C programs run faster but you will regret
choosing C in the middle of the project when you code miserably crashes.
After that you will get through the bugs and will get a faster code, with
approximately 1.5 to 2 times more development time.
