Naw, of course people still do (, for
instance ;). In fact I intend to go back to Lisp, provided
I survive the Python experience. It's just getting productive
in Lisp without a supportive community and a codebase is *hard*.

And, of course, there's still the issue of designing a Forth
MISC machine into a cube of bucky electronics. Of course,
you'd want to hard-wire some of the control logic too,
if you want to control mechanical parts which can operate
at up to 100 GHz.
