It didn't say what they left PHP, Perl and Python for (if you are to
even believe their findings).

PHP has been losing programmers in droves... to Ruby on Rails, but I'm
not sure how that is bad news for scripting-language fans.

Commercially funded studies are completely untrustworthy.  I've seen
contradictory studies published within months of each other by the same
research firms - it was more indicative of a change in clientelle than
anything else.
