By the way, Java is back in the top spot this month on the TIOBE Programming Community Index (a ranking of programmer community interest in a language, more or less), after briefly being matched by C. The fastest rising languages, however, are Objective-C (used by Apple's iProducts), Python (my personal favorite), and C# (Steve Ballmer's personal favorite ;-).

I wish people would stop mentioning the TIOBE index as the whole thing is really quite meaningless. All they do is google every programming language name and count the number of total hits. Hardly an accurate way to gauge interest in a language.
