in reply to Raku is one of the few newbies in the top 100

I don't trust the Tiobe index all that much. It's biased towards hard-to-master languages with forums that are parsable by search engines. So easy-to-learn languages will be ranked lower because users wouldn't need to ask forums for every second line in their program. Languages that have dedicated central forums/other communication channels that are not indexable by Google are also ranked lower.

A prime example of the latter would probably be ABAP, the language used by SAP systems. It's a well-payed job in nearly every large multicorp, but a lot of language support happens behind closed doors. It may not be popular in the sense of "beloved", but it's certainly popular in the sense of "everyone uses SAP. If this thing goes down, the company is too buggered to even file for bankruptcy because we wouldn't be able to tell the judge our assets and liabilities".
