General Development "For years I've tried my damnedest to get away from C. Too simple, too many details to manage, too old and crufty, too low level. I've had intense and torrid love affairs with Java, C++, and Erlang. I've built things I'm proud of with all of them, and yet each has broken my heart. They've made promises they couldn't keep, created cultures that focus on the wrong things, and made devastating tradeoffs that eventually make you suffer painfully. And I keep crawling back to C."

Demand for C has increased a few years ago due to the need for developers in the embedded market.

Otherwise I would take this link with a pinch of salt: Visual Basic 6 is almost more popular than C# and on its way to surpass it.

I think that a more interesting metric would be the languages used daily on our computers and on large applications.
