Programming languages don’t “die.” (They don’t even “fade away.”) Instead, they become the foundation technologies of mission-critical applications ... which may literally be worth millions of dollars to the businesses who own them.

You can say they never die. They only become untouched "legacy" technology waiting for a forklift upgrade. Million dollar mission critical perl hasn't changed since the early 2000s, see this thread http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2011/09/msg177543.html . You'll always find one token place that has a server room filled with aged almond colored plastic and the place is like an egyptian tomb of technology. Perl is damn fast for writing code though.
