Well, as far as the micro controller vendors are concerned, those are 
usually C and to some lesser extend, BASIC compiler's only. 
MikroElectronic has a not half bad Pascal compiler (though with quite 
a few bugs and quirks) for AVR and as I mentioned in my last post, 
for a lot of PIC chips, PMP is a quite decent choice if someone wants 
to stick with Pascal instead of using a different programming language.
Not that anything in general is wrong with those C/BASIC options 
available, but it's simply a matter of preference of the basic 
language/tool to use... ;-)

I personally would like to be able to use FPC for some upcoming 
Raspberry Pi projects (which is an ARM v6/ARM11) rather than having 
to use C (though I am using C for +30 years now as well)
