It's not really relevent to this discussion, but there is _lots_ of
stand-alone code out there. It runs in sub-one-dollar microcontrollers
that are programmed in assembly language or in C without external
libraries (sometimes not even the "libc" that's included in the C
language definition).  Those microcontrollers are everywhere in toys,
appliances, and all sorts of other "non-computer" things.
