In an ideal world, all future CPUs would be 8-bit, have a clock speed of 1MHz, and run on compost. This would force software engineers to actually focus on what the thing has to do, rather than the less pressing question of how much pointless shit they can shoehorn into a gigabyte of RAM.
I was alluding to rowland’s point about bringing down the robots:
Personally, I find that the code I write in assembler is bulletproof, whereas the code I write in C is always crap. Maybe that’s just me.
