digitalmars.D - Anyone looked at Tiobe recently?

FWIW, it rates us as #14, and on the verge of becoming mainstream. The 
statistics are a bit dubious (since it's a measure of "buzz"/hype rather 
than anything concrete), but it certainly helps to justify use of D.

D has had a spectacular rise there, but the headlines just mention Ruby :-(

Phhht! D's not even in the "language of the year" runners-up. But SAS is? I don't even know what the language is. It's a racket, I tell you. ;)

Would it really be great for D to rise even faster? like getting 5% in a few months? I'm not really into making languages :D, but even a simple thing like network load (>dsource)... ... overpopulated newsgroups, with maybe different expectations. Just interested in how you think about this.

I hear you, hitting way up there before 1.0 might be a "bad thing".

Note that Ruby before RoRails was nearly unknown even if it is a very interesting language in itself. Of course Ruby is a very different language with a very different target so what was true for Ruby is not necessarily true for D.. That said Tiobe is weird: SAS? ABAP? Never heard about them.

I pretty sure SAS is a proprietary programming language/system for statistics. Something like Matlab, but specifically for statistics. --bb
