Well, most of the Linux kernel is written in C and while there *is* a 
jump (often JMP) in most asms, you should only do so if you really need 
to.  JSR (jump sub routine) is a better idea in many (most?) cases.  You 
can write really nice structured assembly just as you can with most 
languages - depending on the assembly language, platform, etc.  GOTO is 
still generally a bad idea, and most of the people that use it can't tell 
the difference between a good and a bad time to use it.  

Friend of mine made a really nice asm development environment for his 
home made OS.  Too bad he didn't have any marketing skills.
