Interesting post. For the popularity of programming languages(including statistical packages), TIOBE Programming Community Index would be informative(updated:* *June 2010):

In Index(June 2010), SAS is #1 among statistical packages (rank 14/100 among all programming languages. C/C++/Java are in Top 3 ). Others:

Matlab: 18/100

Fortran: 31/100

Maple, Mathematica, R, SPSS: in [#51 to #100] for their differences are > relatively small.

This Index counts the hits of the most popular search engines(Google, MSN, Yahoo!, Wikipedia and YouTube) with the query +"<language> programming".
