#- As for C being a natural choice as far as the kernel part is
#- concerned... it may be because it compiles to efficient code, or
#- because it facilitates integration with assembler, or because it can
#- efficiently uses registers... Who knows? But the main reason is
#- probably simple: it's because everyone is just used to it.

Well, AFIK, Kernigan and Ritchie designed C just to help themselves to write
the OS.
