OSNews, Generic OSes "Those in search of eternal life need look no further than the computer industry. Here, last gasps are rarely taken, as aging systems crank away in back rooms across the U.S., not unlike 1970s reruns on Nickelodeon's TV Land. So while it may not be exactly easy for Novell NetWare engineers and OS/2 administrators to find employers who require their services, it's very difficult to declare these skills -- or any computer skill, really -- dead." My Take: "C" dying should have been "x86 Assembly".

I would also have to agree with the many who said C should NOT be on this list.

Even when it comes to desktop application, C has been given a new lease on life thanks to GNOME and GTK+, which in case the authors of this article forgot... Is now the default desktop on virtually every commercial UNIX distribution, as well as many major Linux distributions.
