Q031: Are there still people out there, who write programs in FORTH, the most powerful language in the history of programming?

Yes, we do. And our customers are in the field of insurance and banking. Unfortunately there is only a little interest in Forth, so there are not so many good (optimizing) compilers out there. Only commercial available compilers are good enough. We are using SwiftForth (forth.com) and iForth from Marcel Handrix.

But we are also doing lot of work in C, because of performance reasons.
