You can easily do OO programming in assembler, where your objects are
memory data blocks inside which there is a pointer to a jump table,
IIRC Linux kernel does this in C for several things and C++ translate
into a version of it. In fact things like C FILE* are clearly OO and
in some libs FILE* are even polymorphic.

But I doubt that is the point. I, personally, normally use OO style
when I find it easier or clearer.
