Q005: Which programming language would you choose to build a new programming language that?s faster than C?

Since nobody else did, I would vote for FORTH. Since every native FORTH system includes an assembler so you could implement a language which targets precisely to your CPU. The advantage over an Assembler lies in the interactive nature of FORTH which leads to an productivity boost. You can compile and run even some small code of your new language, do some profiling to improve your code. With an interactive System like FORTH you never leave the program and have your results instantly.

The only thing what could happen is that you fall in love with FORTH and build a hyper fast FORTH system. Unfortunately there is only a few interest in FORTH and so no much effort has been done to make highly optimized FORTH systems.
