    and from C we (us humans) made UNIX,MAC comps
    and Java came from C, which became SUNSOLARIS

    No langauge is "most useful". By my opinion, c++ is far more useful then c. Then again, assembly is very useful too, just not for writing a whole program.

    im sure there are more efficient languages for whatever task needs to be done, but C is the basis of everything it seems

    EDIT: What was MSDOS made with?
