Honestly, I can only think of a couple of reasons why one wouldn't want to program in Assembly...
-not up to (or afraid of) the challenge
-not willing to stare at code for a while (while program if you don't want to???)
-not wanting to write the fastest functions/programs possible
And, why are we programmers if you aren't 1) up to a challenge and 2) you don't want to spend time debugging challenging code and 3) you don't want to write the...best code!!!
Can somebody explain this to me???
