Once you get used to assembly language, C, and some newer stuff like C#, Lua and others, and you come back to things like Amos, you're not going to like it anymore.

In fact, when I came to the Amiga from the C64, I started with BASIC (AMOS), and within months moved on to assembly language because it's just so much more powerful and faster.
