that are operating on s-100 systems, I'm sure speed
isn't critical. CNC (Computer Numerical Control) for
instance doesn't require alot of speed (CNC lathes,
mills, etc.). Often these apps are programmed in
interpreted (as opposed to compiled) BASIC.
Interpreted languages are popular in robotic systems.
