Assembly is a thing of the past, it *can* be usefull to write a couples of inline assembly code for beginers, like me once, who didn't know how to make some simple operations in c++ code, like playing with bitfield, simple stuff like that, however i doubt you'll get very far nowaday writing only in assembly. Try making a 10000 lines of code project in asm and tell me how it goes tongue.png . One of the only thing i could think of using it for is for bit rolling (ror, rol), emulators, or to make floppy boot disk, which are almost non-existant in 2013. If you want to decrease your productivity by 10x (compare to c++) or 100x (compare to c# and delphi), then go for it... And i don't see how it make the math easier either... Have you tried multiplication, division, signed integer, floating point??? Probably not...
