I have seen various times now, that programmers like to do a lot of work, and always want to re-invent the wheel.
I must admit, it gives more satisfaction to make something yourself, but isn't it quicker and better to use things that someone else has already done for you?
I do believe C++ and ASM together are very powerful, though there are of course some disadvantages.
Now if everyone who posted here would work together, instead of writing 2 compilers, 4 OS's and some programming languages, maybe that would be more useful.
I'd be happy to "help" and learn something!!!

: Consider http://www.pld2.com
which is already a mature language for developing embedded systems. Highlights: no runtime, extensive compile-time programmability, processor instruction set programmable, rapid context compile-time switching between 4 codesets, more.
