  • In the heyday of the dot-com boom (and pre-Java days), I used to tout the estimate (based on book sales, trainings we did, and on how many programmers didn't buy the books) that there were between 250K and 1 million people who had written a line of Perl code in the previous month.

      Are you referring to two different periods, say 1995 and 1999? Java was well established during the heyday of the dot-com boom.

      Or, are you saying that Java has become much more entrenched since the dot-com boom? I guess I could see that. With the Industry contraction, shops are choosing one language for development a lot of times and Java often wins the competitions. Of course, recently Java is feeling the heat of competition from .net.
