C: Language => OS API protocol ?

 C Isn't A Programming Language Anymore - Faultlore

C is the lingua franca of programming. We must all speak C, and therefore C is not just a programming language anymore – it’s a protocol that every general-purpose programming language needs to speak.

If you want programs written in your language to be good citizens that work well with the major operating systems, you need to interact with the operating system’s interface.

Rust and Swift cannot simply speak their native and comfortable tongues – they must instead wrap themselves in a grotesque simulacra of C’s skin
