General Development I like this one: "By definition, a program is an entity that is run by the computer. It talks directly to the CPU and the OS. Code that does not talk directly to the CPU and the OS, but is instead run by some other program that does talk directly to the CPU and the OS, is not a program; it's a script." Here's the other eleven.

x86 assembler is scripting too.

Because It's not native at all. All x86 machine code is translated internally to microcode and that microcode is the native language of today CPUs.

x86 instruction set is just a compatibility layer. So all what We write are scripts.
