A new poll last year, and one that was extremely close.

No, it is a technique, not a language.

How about adding Scheme, or Objective Caml? Also, Lua is not an acronym, it's just a name so it should contain only a single capital letter at the beginning.

What about Fortran? Still very popular in scientific computing, waiting for the new revision "Fortran 2008".

Am I mistaken or has 2008 been a very calm year on the programming language front? I wonder whether it makes sense to take vote when things are pretty much the way they were last year.

Ruby, All the goodness on Dreamlinux is Ruby based. Nelsongs the Dreamlinux head dev got me into Ruby, and I am no coder I might add (really, I have problems with php Lol!) and Ruby has had me pulling my hair out, then smiling then making me realise how amazing it is to code with Ruby. Ok, I am at the very basic script standard at the moment, but it is a wonderful language.
