Hello all,

For what its worth, I've updated my usenet language stats (interpret them how
you will)

This time, the data reflects the actual number of DIFFERENT posters to each
group in the last 200 posts to each group, as opposed to just the total posts
to the group.

I think this gives a better idea about how many people relative to population
of programmers use each language. There are some surprises. Like, what in the
hell is Clipper?

You may also decide to put c/c++ together, in which case the total is 1511,
right under java (which makes intuitive sense)

Best,
Aaron.
