Re: I like Python and C
IBM owning a big chunk of a then faltering Intel gave us the joys of segment:offset memory addressing. That set us back years in assembly coding quality software. There were Zilog and Motorola chips around at the time that were much better and could handle direct memory addressing. We all paid a price for 15+ years until Intel reached that point.
If you don't know how segment:offset works, take some time and you'll see the futility we all faced back in the day....I moved on to C, never embraced C++ and Python is the only interpreted language I became fond of. Too bad about the situation as it has been a fun ride.
