Somewhat off topic and rhetorical question so I am posting here instead of any of main Arduino topics.
Arduino IDE is based on C language and would be easy for people who had classes or training in some variants of C. But some of us older people grew up on different computer languages. Hypothetically would it be possible to have Arduino that can work on FORTRAN, COBOL, BASIC, PILOT, LOGO, Pascal, and many other older languages that are rarely used or taught today?
It seems somewhat possible to me. It'd need a translator that understands the syntax of other language and convert to C or AVR binary for compiling. Languages like PILOT and LOGO might do great with LCD or large LED matrix for displaying graphic for example, and BASIC is still pretty easy to learn.
