Why Is C Suddenly the Most Popular Programming Language ???
Java drops to the No. 2 most popular programming language as the C language takes over the top spot.
A Description of the Java Situation on the TIOBE Site said:
It took some time but Java's long-term downward trend line finally crosses C's stable (almost flat) popularity line. Although it is expected that Java will not decline much further due to the popularity of the Android platform, C is able to remain No. 1 for at least another couple of months. This can be concluded by looking at the extrapolation of moving averages for both languages.
Java has indeed seen a downward trend, perhaps not helped by the recent hoopla over the Flashback virus, which exploits a Java vulnerability. However, as TIOBE indicated, Android remains Java’s ace in the hole.
