  • The presence of Delphi in the top ten should be enough to discount TIOBE's list completely. Delphi. More popular than JavaScript.

    Perhaps there's some hidden Internet where Web 2.0 rounded corners are only possible through ADAX, and TIOBE's accidentally let on that such a beast exists.

    Delphi, also known as Pascal with object extensions, from the days when Anders Hejlsberg was still at Borland -- a decade ago.

    • Let me say it more bluntly.

      If you think TIOBE should not be completely dismissed because of its major flaws in both methodology and results, you're part of the problem.

      TIOBE falls prey to the First Citiwide Change Bank fallacy: that just by getting a LOT of bad data, you can overcome the problems inherent in your methodology. "One word: volume."

      But a lot of crap is still crap.
