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:
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".
