According to Amazon.Com: python 193, perl 557, c# 192, asp 444,
vb 109.  This is skewed -- python includes book on/by monty
python, asp includes two technologies (asp and asp.NET, books
are not interchangeable between the two), and visual basic
books may not carry the tag "vb" as such ("visual basic"
gives 1361 hits, but there may be some overlap with "vb";
"monty python" gives 57 hits, but they need not be all non-
Python -- the TOP hit for "monty python" is... *the Python
Cookbook*!!!).
