That was the reason I voted for it. This year I realised I can't keep ignoring it (despite all its flaws), if you have anything to do with websites/application, there's no way you can ignore js.

Perl of course

perl is still going strong.

There is no single programming language that is "the best" for all problems, but I choose perl because it will meet my needs for *most* problems I face. It is the language that is most versatile and useful.

Next year, there will have to be two entries for perl: perl5 and perl6

Voted for the second... Even if I couldn't practice much this year...

Love it... It seems F# is not bad too but didn't have time neither .

If you do any non-trivial software project you'll find the truth: Javascript is not a language, it's an abomination. As is Objective-C. Can I downvote?

Prolog is missing in the list.

I think ima vote Java, simply because it is my personal language of the year.

I voted python, because most of what I did this year was in it. But by a very close margin, it would have been OCaml, which is missing, and has seen a very impressive development lately.

I'm going Ruby - I know it's almost always known / used in the context of web development (Rails), but it's a really good language. I'd go with Python as the second.

They are worth the tradeoff in performance for the increase in productivity - unless, of course you are doing some low-level system stuff, in a constrained environment, or performance is paramount.

Perhaps the moral here is that there are a LOT of trivial projects that need getting done... Hence the popularity of JavaScript.

It's easy being popular when you're the only game in town!

I don't really know how much I believe that, though. There's quite a few compile-to-js solutions out there, so you don't really need to worry about it all that much.
