@carl - that's a pretty good point. i didn't think of it in terms of certain higher-level languages highlighting specific features to provide different options

and i meant fast to execute... i understand the benefits of higher-level languages being faster to write in (i write in .net, ha)

@michael - but there's still a market for super-lean, super-fast programming, especially with the onslaught of all these mobile devices... why is C still the best option for some of these devices, ie, why is there not another at-that-level language, like .NET-vs-Python-esque?

comment Why hasn't a faster, “better” language than C come out?
@carl - i wasn't really trying to invite comparison. it was more of a "why hasn't this happened yet" type question. i love that people have their own preferences for language, i was just wondering why there's nothing quite like C at that level, and why C has pretty much been accepted as the standard for programming...

@part III - don't add "fancy new stuff" unless you're getting paid to do it!
