With all the level of abstraction introduced by OOL, people seem to forget and underestimate the purpose of C. C is first and foremost a portable assembler, which is why it is still used today. Today's "programmers" want to argue, that C is old and should be replaced by a different language such as C++. However, C++ and any other OOL language are so abstract, that they fail to let the developer imagine how the code will be translated to assembly and binary code.

In my opinion C is irreplaceable, and if you are one of those who haven't heard of assembly yet or argues that low level system knowledge is counterproductive (and believe me there are a lot of these so called programmers around us), then you are not a programmer nor a developer, you are a hobbyist.
