My history with Forth and stack machines (2010)

Source: Hacker News

Article note: I've come across this article before, but it's been a few years, and it's a really good bit of writing and philosophizing. Forth really is weird and wonderful, in that "artifact from another world with different values and modes of thinking" kind of way. I love some things about it's aesthetic.... but it isn't actually all that suited to solving problems people in this world have, and other than tool-chain overhead, I'd usually rather write in at least the less nasty assembly languages than deal with contorting myself to it.
