It's all to do with the creating programs - look at the speed of assembler against python programs - but it's easier to program in python than assembler, so that's what gets used!

 ;D
im not shore i have any reason to doubt or other wise

once you have `programs` ( i hear they are algorithms + data structs ;)
you have to run them in "your" (tm)hw/environment

and when they don't work they provide  some (incomplete) insight's into "The Mess We're In" - https://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,26336.msg169746.html#msg169746

wrt
>look at the speed of assembler against python programs
this slide (from: "The Mess We're In" by Joe Armstrong)
seams relevant

Maybe we won't live long enough to see it, but I think it's safe to say that soon (in the next 100 years) home computers will die out, and those who insist on using desktop computers will have to make do with discarded parts from data centres, as these new parts are absurdly expensive.

Few of my nephews know how to use computers, some have never used one.
