Discussion on: Is C still a high level language?

It's relative to what you're comparing to. I'd say it's lower level than some other languages, which is not a bad thing.

Arguably, one can consider most high level languages like Ruby, Python, Java, etc to be not that high level either because you still need to actually write instructions instead of just something more declarative and leaving the implementation up to the language.
