Everyone should knew this was going to happen as every 5 years we see new languages include in their main features: "ease of use", "garbage collected", "transparent to dev memory allocation".
As a result, C is pushed out from the "high level lang." definition every time a language is born in popularity with those characteristics, and that's because today is so far away from those new "high level languages" we cannot consider it a high level lang anymore.
