Re: 8051: one of the most widely used

until fairly recently, all FTDI chips were basically an embedded 8051 with built-in USB peripheral

as recently as last week I was playing around with graphics LCD modules as part of my day job, and the manufacturer's reference code is in 8051 assembler

I have no problem at all believing this...
