in thread == and != don't work as expected

Under your definition it does not sound as if any languages are strongly typed. I have always heard people refer to C, C++, and Java as "strongly typed" languages. Somebody's making a mistake with the definitions here though, and I have trouble accepting a definition of "typing" which does not allow any languages to be strongly typed...

    There are languages with good static type systems, including Haskell and ML. I suspect the people you overheard know nothing about these languages.

    For more information, see MJD's Strong Typing lecture slides or almost every other discussion on Lambda the Ultimate.
