"Almost all of these better languages are implemented in C, your OS
likely usese a lot of C or a language that is heavily inspired
by/built upon C. Perhaps it is not the language that is the problem
when you're having trouble with it."
"So, I'm curious what are these so called better languages, and what
were they built on seeing as it couldn't have been any modern
operating system that I could find."
