PopularitY of Programming Language, C#

C# Named Top Programming Language of 2012

It is interesting how people (and politicians :)
always find a way to read what they like from statistics.

In another rating or search popularity (based on Google's search data),
C# is #4 (at 10%) vs Java #1 (with 30%),
but the trend for C# is positive (+1.8%), so it is "most popular".
With this trend, it would take 30 years to reach Java!

C# is a good and popular prog. language,
but don't ever blindly trust statistics...

By the way, the language of the future is JavaScript :)
Why? Because some most prominent developers of C# and Java are now working on JavaScript and related web languages that compile to JavaScript (TypeScript, Dart...)

In a way they have already done this with iPod Nano + Watch Band
