Sure, I get what you're saying. I am not thinking so much for 8 bit AVRs but rather in archs where you may have 2 chips (think Arduino Yśn that's why I mention OpenWRT) or in larger microcontrollers like ESP8266 which is where most of the Circuit Python is working right now AFAIK.

    I don't think "where Python is working".

    I've done my job.

    I don't believe that low-level hardware hackers need to think that hard core embedded stuff should be done with Python/Perl/whatever. If it isn't a micro-controller, its something more high-level, and I didn't think your question leveraged that.

    You may want to rephrase your question, as having extra power and double CPUs to make it 'capable' to run a high(er) level language makes things a microcontroller doesn't quite do that. Items that 'power up' to allow these higher level languages completely take away from their true purpose.

    A microcontroller is like a PLC (Programmable Logic Control)... sway from their basic purpose so they accept anything but basic commands, and you may as well have a full-blown computer :)
