This programming language is low-level and hard to learn. if you want to do low-level stuff you choose right language. Like a write a program for microcontroller or write a OS or kernel.

C cannot directly be seen as an alternative to Java, because Java focusses on business applications, while C focusses on systems programming. You will not be as productive in C as you can be in Java or its derivate languages. For low-level programming IMHO C is the first choice though. Before complaining that C is outdated remember that even the heart of Java is written in C/C++. Also remember that the software that makes your computer usable in the first place is most likely also written in C.

technically, Zig is based on C, so C is like the Parent language which Zig spun out of, to improve upon some of it's aspects.
