So being old implies it's bad? That's the kind of thinking that makes
people try to reinvent something that is already good and then ruin it.
We could land a man on the moon with 4K ram, but we can't run a
formatted text editor which complies with most standards without 100MB.

Most e-mail now contains html because someone thought there was a need
to make them pretty. Now you need a whole graphical interface just to
read a stupid email from some institution or corporation which thinks
that they must "modernize". And even then..

Not saying that C is the holy god of all languages and everything
should be in C. Everything has a purpose.
Being old doesn't make it bad!
