Visual Basic Popularity Plummets

In the latest update to the Tiobe index of programming language popularity, Visual Basic .Net slipped from 7th place to tenth place, and Visual Basic dropped from 13th to 14th. "Classic Visual Basic is going down, but also VB.Net is about to lose its top 10 position, which means that we are on the brink of no Basic language in the top 10 since we started tracking the Tiobe index," said Tiobe Managing Director Paul Jansen. "There are alternatives available, such as PureBasic (position #43), thinBasic (#77) and BBC Basic (#79), but their communities are still too small yet to compensate the declining popularity of Visual Basic."

The top five on the list for this month were Java (24.10 percent), Python (12.3 percent), PHP (10.6 percent), C# (8.9 percent), and JavaScript (7.5 percent).
