@Marcus, It's a rhetorical question. I do not advocate writing programs in machine code.

Here's another thought. Imagine someone comes up with a computer that, unlike modern computers, is smart and at the same time blazing fast. Would you consider that computer a failure?

Yet if speed (of execution) is the ultimate goal why don't we all write our programs in machine code?

No, I wouldn't say you misunderstood the question. Your answer gives a valuable perspective to the topic. I just wanted to point that I did not state that "slow = bad".

Let me ask this another way - what in the implementation of PHP makes it slow?

Do you think languages that are considered slow (in terms of running), such as PHP, can be implemented to run faster?

I didn't state that "slow = bad". Nevertheless, thanks for sharing your thoughts.

You are right saying that "software engineers use programming languages for their needs". This only supports the statement that "programming languages exist to serve programmers".
