we have cudder, nikita and frozenanus, but one of the /prog/ legends is still missing. how long until the strong AI comes Forth?

Despite that, Forth is actually a non-joke language, that has its uses.

never said it is, even though I personally couldn't get into it. personally, I think that using it to write anything that isn't a command shell for an embedded device seems cumbersome, although this might be because I don't have much experience using it

1. Forth could be used as a bootstrap language, when you don't have higher level language. I.e. Forth can be easily implemented even using machine code.
2. Forth is a practical teaching example for stack languages.

but what is the practical use of stack languages? many bytecodes are stack-based but they're pain in the ass to write directly, it's good to know how they work but in practice they seem more tedious than 'normal' assembly

as I said, you generally don't write JVM directly so it's useful to know how it works (for decompilation etc.) but not so useful to be able to write it.
