  2. Most parts of the operating systems like windows, Linux and Android are written in C.
  3. C is used in many embedded systems.
  4. C programming is used in game development.
  5. C is faster than python, java.
  6. C programming is widely used language and is consistently in the top positions of the TIOBE index.
  7. C programming language is well suited for structured programming.

In the next section we will begin with the C programming basics.
