I am mostly use C++ and Object Pascal in my work. And the strict typing system helped me to kill many-many bugs. This is my experience.
Google and other companies: I don't claimed that scripting languages are totally unuseable. This things are very good for small programs, little utilites. I am use PHP on my little webpage, and there is a small bash script in my linux setup program. But IMHO Google is use C or assembly in their search engine, not any scripting or managed language.
