Absolutely agree. The research has been done using bad initial conditions. They used both Windows and SSD which doesn't support TRIM command. Then they used tools which were not design neither to deal with SSD secure delete ATA command no TRIM command. They have got false results. I guess students don't study hard these days.

I'm with you. I've started with BASIC 20 years ago and it was cool to type 10 print "A" and see "A" on the screen. Today, the char "A" on the black screen is definitely *not* impressive. People do amazing things using Javascript, like a 1kbyte size AI chess master. Go and teach HTML5, Javascript; something what is more visual like jQuery. Whatever, but no BASIC.
