I've now said multiple times that Vala will not be added this year, but will be considered next year.

COBOL is still widely used on the business side of the medical industry, and since Linux is so prevalent in any computing environment, COBOL *on* Linux is one of the most common constructs you'll see.

There may not be a lot of COBOL programmers nowadays, but they're definitely in great demand and making the big bucks.

Talking Shun the snake

There should be a "most absurd and pretentious documentation" category, so Python could win a prize it actually deserves.

Where is J?

The most wonderful language is missing. It is called J, the successor of the former most wonderful language, APL.

It is not open source, but it is free, and it works perfectly also on Linux.

Check it out on http://www.jsoftware.com

As of this week there is even a new version.

Ruby on Rails is actually my choice for next project I am going to make on the Internet. Some point out that Ruby syntax is significantly more complex compared to Python. However, if you see well crafted code in Ruby, you get just amazed! It is coding almost like talking. Take a look for RSpec for Ruby for example. It rocks!

I've found doc.python.org to be very dry. Please link to what I'm missing.
