I wonder how much of that growth is Python 3 and how much is Python 2.

I'm amazed there's still so much C being done.  I meet good programmers
all the time these days, who have never touched C code.

The crash of Objective-C is amusing ;-).

It's surprising that R places at all, given the amount of math that its
users need to know.

I wonder what it means that Perl is booming.  Hmm.
