Even so, I found them interesting.

* I haven't heard of ProLog in years, yet it's in the top 20. I always 
thought of it as a one company language to support their PCBs.

* C# is the only M$ dot net language even mentioned. Although the notes 
at the bottom says that all basic languages have been clumped. I wish 
they weren't.

* VB, which is no longer supported, is still rising.

* Java is going down.

* Python seems to be the main rising star.
