consider the slammer worm VS. the blaster worm, the slammer worm caused vastly more destructive entropy than did the blaster worm, even given the fact that the source exploit code for blaster was potentialy much more prolific and damaging. the difference was that whereas the slammer worm was recoded by hand, in assembily, and optomised to the point of being art, the blasters were sloppy cut and paste hacks, at least one of which was writen in c# of all things.
at an equal skill level assembily will beat any high level language in nearly any technical catagory, its only draw back is that on a practical level its a lot lot harder to do right than high level stuff.

Ratboy wrote some good articles (I picked them up to learn the assembly ), useless now since it uses the PSP and I don't believe that exists in non-.com files (I may be wrong, the EXE header is the PSP perhaps? I have no idea, probably not), but still good to know, interesting too but kind of useless since it over writes the file.
