General Development "In this tiny ebook I'm going to show you how to get started writing 6502 assembly language. [...] I think it's valuable to have an understanding of assembly language. Assembly language is the lowest level of abstraction in computers - the point at which the code is still readable. Assembly language translates directly to the bytes that are executed by your computer's processor. If you understand how it works, you've basically become a computer magician." More of this, please.

...then it's quite a jump to say "not widely used" - it still ships a ton (just not any more in top smartphones for example). "Quite outdated" doesn't mean much if it's perfectly good enough (and much less expensive, with how ARM licenses older cores)
