Java Is The Most Popular Language (#1) In February 2013

Java Is #1 (18.387%), C (17.080%) second, Objective-C (9.803%) third. C++ and C# are at the ranks four and five.

It seems like all C-based languages are doing well.

Well, you should actually wrote 'it is the most popular language, again'. :)

I would be interested if the C-based languages are popular because they are superior to other syntaxes/programming models (based on current industry needs) or there is a kind of syntax lock-in similar to the keyboard keys layout lock-in.

Hello Adam, I find interesting the results provided by another site /service called ohloh, related to language use-trends.They use a quite different approach, but it is nice to check it out as well, if you want to have an all around view.

For those who were complaining about security issues with java a few weeks ago, let me tell you this; Java is not a browser! Java is not an operating system! Java is a programing language. I have Java for breakfast, Java for lunch and Java for diner. If don't like Java then that's too bad!!! Long live JAVA!!!!
