in reply to (OT) Where is programming headed?

I would disagree with the sweeping statement that C is obsolete. Nearly ALL base OS code and drivers are still written in C. They may have a case for apps, but for any "guts" code, you will still mostly see C. Even the much debated Windows OS's are written nearly entirely in C. I doubt C will die anytime soon.

Just my $0.02 ($0.032 CDN)

"Nothing is sure but death and taxes" I say combine the two and its death to all taxes!

    C can't die! All of the programming languages I use are written in C! (Compilers, runtimes, interpreters...)

    ps: Watch your exchange rates! Today your $.02 USD is only worth $0.0312 CDN!
