C programming language most popular
Good news for C programmers: The April 2010 update of the TIOBE index shows that C is the most popular programming language. With about 18% it is close to Java, but 0.007% ahead. Of course, there is criticism of how to measure language popularity, and there are other methods as well. But it is good to know that doing low-level work in C is staying on the popular and important side of software development.
