@codesections Well, most of that is… if not wrong, draws a wrong conclusion. Yes, C is not much like a modern CPU, but it presents a reasonable model for thinking about low-level code, C is still among the fastest compiled languages, and most importantly you'll always need it in a HLL to talk to libraries. I write new Scheme FFI code in C every week or so.
And C doesn't pre-date threads, timesharing dates back to 1959.
