    Why?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    You'd be surprised if I told you on how many programming languages C is based on... B and BCPL are just a couple of them.

    It is though the basis of most operating systems, since it's the best language for programming close to the metal.

    There are many C derivatives ( C++ for example ) but there are also many languages that have absolutely nothing to do with it. Python, BASIC, Prolog and Haskell come to mind.
    Devoted my life to programming...

    Assembly is the basis of most programming languages.

    C is just the lowest level language above Assembly that is still widely used.
