The most popular programming languages in 2008

TIOBE has released the newest ranking for the most popular programming language here. Java remains the top popular programming language. C and C++ follow with Java. I dont' see R in this ranking. Maybe it doesn't belong to this group! Maybe I should devote more of my time learning the other lanugages. I have discussed the rationale here.

I agree with Eric Raymond's opinion of Java, C/C++, Perl, Lisp and Python. They are all great languages and have their own most powerful areas of use.

I don't have experience with Microsoft speical languages.

And R can be seen as a "far" variant of Lisp.
