Good, because anything you can write a half-decent operating system in is NOT a general purpose programming language. It would be far too low-level to be useful.

Yes, that's why I am always astonished why people keep on writing apps in C ;-)

    I'm not sure if you mean that sarcastically or not, but it is true. 98% of apps written in c, should not be. A higher level language (such as Perl) would save on development costs, produce far more stable/secure code while meeting performance requirements.

    Then again, if companies want to be stupid, it's not my money they're losing.
