It is kind of expected though. To convert for example te latest of games which may take 200 people a couple of years to complete would instead take 50 years.... by which time of course the technology is redundant anyway.If only more was written in assembler. I can remember back in the 8 bit days and games written in assembly language did things that other programmers could only dream of. Everying is fucking C and bastard stepchilds thereof these days, cobbled together crap that never maximises peformance of the hardware but is easier to code and time = money.
Yes it is the main lang for embedded systems with little interaction.Assembly still remains the dominating development language in many industries - like embedded devices.
