Zealots of object oriented programming throw a fit, when they realize that no matter how much you force a metaphor, the computer doesn't give a shit. Translating any complex set of tasks into rudimentary instructions is inherently difficult. No magic language feature will change that fact.
That is such crap. Name me any platform without C code at its core. Just because C is relegated to a role of providing a system in which people can run their shitty code, doesn't mean it is obsolete. If you don't know C, then you don't actually know how your computer works. If you don't know how your computer works, then you will write shitty code in any language you choose.
