Where is Ada??? An Ada compiler is part of the GNU Compiler Collection as the GNAT frontend... and it's very important in lots of high-end apps.

If Vala were on that poll I would vote for it.

Seriously? Where is it? I am waiting.

Where is the Grandfather then?

Well, there are some people still using Fortran, IMHO the grandfather of all compiled languages.

The biggest surprise to me was how the Android UI feeled using Java: easy, lightweight, nice looking,...

I think it's great, but if I am doing Java for Android I do it in Windows. Other than that I have jdk installed on my Slackbox.

Vala has many of the features (classes and subclasses, class extensions, use of access modifiers on classes, lambda expressions, two different methods of class construction, etc.) of Java but compiles to C and then to native code instead of to a (rather bloated) ABI that has to be interpreted. On top of this, it's GPL and not patent-encumbered. Yet it's not in this poll, which I find just stupid.
