Little things that matter in language design
C is good because it is trivial and easy to read when done properly. Token expansion or resource exhaustion won't creep up on you from the underlying libraries.
There are of course other aspects to it. Given the choice between a C daemon and a Python one, without knowing the program I too would probably pick the latter one, but it all boils down to prejudice.
