Original OSNews Interviews OSNews sat down with Ian Seyler, the Founder and Lead Programmer at Return Infinity, the maker and sponsor of Baremetal OS, a 64-bit OS for x86-64 based computers written entirely in Assembly. Editor's note: We'd love to do similar interviews with the people behind other alternative or hobby OS projects. If there's a project that you'd like to learn more about, let us know.

You know there are so many languages these days, it's become difficult to keep track of them.

For example, I already have trouble remembering the substring functions between javascript, c, php, perl, .net, mysql, plsql... very rarely do I use others.

What does forth offer as a compelling reason to learn/use it?

It may be good, but these days languages have way too much overlap and the choice is seemingly arbitrary.
