Imo I wouldn't say that "being everything for everyone" for C. In my mind C has still mostly retained its simpleness, which for me would be its most defined feature. It is still not that many concepts you need learn to code in C. You still need to be very organised to code safe and correct code in it but that is not something that has changed. But I might be wrong. Someone with better experience with C throughout its entire life are free to correct me :)
