What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

C is suitable because networking was developed at *X and C was the langguage of *X.
There is nothing on C that make it special for network programming, except that the socket library was first written on C.
Right now, many other langguages support network programming as easy as C.
e.g : Pascal, Java, C++.

Nothing - it was just at the right place at the right time.  It could have been done in any language which had the flexibility and in which you didn't have to fight the OS to get what you wanted.

The languages which could have been used when C was invented: BCPL, Coral66, POP3, RTL/2: none with special features, all general purpose languages.

Nothing has happened on this question in more than 9 months. It's time for cleanup!

My recommendation, which I will post in the Cleanup topic area, is to
accept answer by cup [grade B] (a philosophical discussion).

PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT THIS COMMENT AS AN ANSWER!
