Is HolyC better than C?

From the very little I have looked at Holy C, it a bit closer in semantics to assembly languages than C is, so it may be better for hardware programming and implementing some parts of an operating system. I believe C is probably a bit better for “high-level” programming.

Who made HolyC?

Background. Afterward, he proclaimed that he was in direct communication with God, that God told him the operating system he built was for God’s third temple, and that TempleOS is of “divine intellect” due to the inspired nature of the code. He initially called it the “J Operating system” and later renamed it to “LoseThos”,…

Is there a paging in TempleOS?

There is no paging, so it is instantly usable. TempleOS has its own programming language, HolyC. The whole operating system is written in it, except for x64 assembly in the lower-level parts. Perhaps unexpectedly, the same language is also used for the shell.
