    getting a lot of press doesn't necessarily equate to popularity. Do you feel like Windows is crushing the IT industry too ? surely not ?

    In their own little niches, other languages thrive and prosper. Yes, even Ruby (I umm, prefer Perl myself, but to each his own ;) I used to worry about it all the time myself (when I didn't know Java as well as I probably do now, I worried a lot more). Now, it's just another tool. Sometimes, I use it because my then-employers dictated I do so. But it's just a tool in the toolbox to me.
