Yes, nice credentials. The AmigaDE might give them a run for their money though, as its VP language allows you to hit the metal too. Basically you just write a version of your routines in VP, (err, hopefully that's the right name for their virtual programming language), plus any number of copies of it in the machine languges of your choice, and VP will choose the machine language if the right processor's detected, else it'll use the VP code. So, cross-platform programming /and/ processor-specific programming where that extra bit of performance is required.

You mean there's someone here who hasn't? (:
