Response to: Modern Programmers Should Write Code in Assembly

Agreed. A large part of the article borders on being useless rant. The worst part is how he used the example of word processor speed not following Moore's law as an argument for programmers not writing good code. While I can say that MS Word and the like are bloatware, buggy, proprietary etc., I find no need for it to increase in speed by a factor of 10000x+.


Probably the only valid point in the entire article: implementation is the main weakness of most code. And don't blame the programmers in such a casual and irresponsible manner unless you're desperate to be flamed.
