Why not? You might need one of these, though.

Agreed. However, what I think this person meant was actually building hardware with the same function as software.

I don't like assebly... it is not portable... but it is the fastest allright

Once i programmed a loader in assembly to hack a license verification for Rhino 3D, using SoftICE to monitor which flags were being used for license verification...

I definitely vote for C/C++/Java/Python... or ADA for some stuff..

I'd program a quick 'n dirty app in Python, or Java, a more complex project in C++, and an intensive CPU hogging app in C.

I'd use ADA to program an Airplane stability authority controller...

So... each tool to its use...

Sorry to be a bit off topic, but as far as ADA, I know the US government uses it to. I learned about it when I was a lot younger, and even though I might vote for this or that language, ADA is by far one of the best IMO.

"Ada" (the programming language) is a proper name: Lady Ada Lovelace.

"ADA" is an acronym. It's most common reference is to the American Dental Association
