#- For example, a September article in InfoWorld said "But the 
#- big winner
#- this time around is the object-oriented scripting language 
#- Python, which
#- saw a 6 percent gain in popularity, almost doubling last 
#- year's results."

How big are the chances that SourceForge numbers actually could be
extrapolated to the rest of the universe?

According to them (check software map, and look by programming language),
and showing everything with a "developers choice for their project" share >=

C++             18.5
C               18.1
Java            17.5
PHP             12.9
Perl             7.2
Python           4.7
Visual Basic     2.6
C#               2.6
JavaScript       2.6
Delphi/Kylix     2.1
Unix Shell       2.0

It also would nice to see a graph showing tendencies here.
