Assembly has been ignored by much of the Unix/Linux community and is almost never found in desktop applications. Some of the reasons for this are historical and related to portability. Other reasons include negative images of assembly and lack of tools. Today a small niche exists for assembly on the desktop. This will be explored here along with the supporting tools.
The resources section provides links to more information and places to discuss assembler topics. Of special interest to the author is a section of predictions and history. A email list for programmers interested in Desktop assembly is described in the resources section.
The AsmIDE family of programs are currently underdevelopment and some have reached a useful state.
