comment How to operate a computer without an operating system?
Pardon me, but I don't understand what an OS has to do with a programming language. I've programmed embedded systems in C with and without an operating system. Same with assembly language. So, is it possible to program a processor directly with an OS? (We are presently doing this on our embedded system).

Is it possible that a compiler could convert case 2 into case 1 provided there are no statements between the for loops in case 2?

comment What is exactly the meaning of “portability”?
The intent of C portability is that it should compile and execute on another platform. The important distinction is that Java doesn't need to rebuild in order to run on another platform, whereas a C program does. Look at all the Linux distributions of code.

Using C# in the first place (just kidding). ;-)
