For the foreseeable future there will be application domains in which there will never be enough processing power to satisfy the subject matter experts that work in these domains. A very short list includes: atmospheric modeling, CFD applications, HPC simulations/optimization tools ... And that's in the science world. You also have OSs, DBs, web servers, HFT apps ... So, I'm not sure why you'd say that Cs days are numbered. Do you think the next high performance OS or MPI implementation will be written in some interested language?
