Well I'll bite. :-)
I know that there are a lot of people here that say there's no such
thing as C/C++. From a theoretical viewpoint I guess that's very true,
as C++ is a superset of C (or nearly) and as such I could just always
write C++ and be done with it. I like to use both though, sometimes C++
and sometime C/C++. I think the term "C/C++" nicely sums up lots and
lots of code that is/has been written. (That is, C with a few C++
features thrown in.)
