Software Development Magazine (maybe? been a while since I read the
article) interviews lots of programmers yearly, asking - among other
things - what programming languages they use. The article mentioned that
Python's share has grown by about 1% a year for several years in a row.
I think it was around 10-13% a year or two ago.

Interestingly enough, Pythonistas earned relatively high salaries
compared to others.
