I started on assembly language with the 6502 in my VIC-20
and then did a lot on the origninal IBM-PCs because the
original system lacked a lot of options. Now I do PIC chips.
Never ONCE did I feel inclined to organize things in stacks.
Memory-mapped, always. It's the human way.

FORTH is a old-tyme leftover from when memory was a
small and precious resource. It has no place today -
not even on PIC chips with their limited resources.
