Summary: TIOBE shows C# on the decline, but Miguel de Icaza still promotes it
For the last ten years, except for a curious dip in 2004-2005, Java has held the top spot, but has been on a steady decline. It has now dropped to a 17% rating, just under C’s 17.5%; next in the table is C++ holding steady at 8.9%, a rising Objective C at 8.2% (up 3.8%) and a slightly down C# at 7.3%.
Why are some people under the impression that C# is dominant? Maybe in some counties it has got some share, but all in all it’s unimportant and still declining. Xamarin is chasing a dying market, offering something that the development community does not want (Mono is an answer in search of a question). █
