The days of assembly language ended over 10 years ago. Unless your processor is less than a 386, don't even think

If you want to stand out in the crowd, use one of the Wirthian languages to get the job done: Pascal, Modula-2 or Oberon. All of them support low level programming (to a certain degree) so you can do most of the things you want to.
The business kit is right... Only very rare cases justify the use and burden of assembly language.
