Java "It's official. Java has taken the top spot away from C++ to become the top language on SourceForge. Mats Henricson points out in his blog that as of yesterday, Java has 16738 projects on SourceForge, compared to the 16731 of C++."

Project numbers don't indicate anything.

What about activity percentile or released files?

The number of undead projects on SourceForge is staggering. How many of those projects are realy active, developing and releasing files. that is a far more interesting number than non-existant projects claiming to "use" a language.

I've read one to many times that they are in planning stage and haven't released any files since 2001.

By the way, I couldn't care less about the language, as long as the software does the thing it was written for.
