I mean, I know both, but I haven't used either professionally in
years (C++, 2000; Java, 2004).
Since using C++, I've been called upon to program in: C, tcl, Python,
PHP, Ruby (and, of course, Java).

No, it's not.
I've been a software engineer for 30 years and I've never done any
Windows coding. I've also never owned a Windows machine.
Sure, that eliminates some jobs, but they're not the ones I'd choose
