You are an assembly language programmer.
You've mastered interrupts, instruction formats, IO nitty gritties,
protection modes and all the other good stuff

Up comes this ‘structured programming' kid believing his new religion will save
the world.
You ask him about all the stuff youve spent your life on
1st answer: none of thats available
You scratch your head: So the kewlest paradigm is the poweroff button
2nd answer: Well if you must have all that there's
- separate compilation
- inline assembly
- intrinsics
- etc
- etc

life worse.
