That is very interesting and effective.   What interests me about this, though, is more than just the superficial notion that “Perl shows 7% whereas Python shows 30% and Java shows 26%.   Here are some things that come to mind, and I’d like to know what you think about any of them.   (These are not argument points; they are discussion points.)

Again ... for discussion.

    When you cite a reliable, verifiable, public source for that assertion; I'd consider discussing the rest of your post.
