Java, C, C#, C++ and Objective C are the top 5 languages by popularity.

They used search engines to determine the rankings.

"Most popular" by just that definition of "popular".

Still, good to see Visual Basic in the top ten and still ahead of VB.Net :-)

I've coded in 12 of those 20 over the years, plus had a dabble in Fortran-77, Coral-66 and x86 Assembler

Nice to see that the 40odd year old grandaddy 'C' is just about still "joint top on goal difference" after all these years - in the race for programming perfection, quality will always outlive shinyness! ;-)
