To be fair, TIOBE is an awful way of determining actual usage. It's "methodology" is to search for +"<language> programming". Is Transact-SQL really used by nearly as many people (as of the latest index) as Perl or Python?

Here's some oddities (from Google currently, at least):

  • +"c programming" +"objective-c"
  • +"basic programming" +"perl"
  • +"c coding" vs +"python coding" vs +"perl coding"
  • +"java coder" vs +"ruby coder"
  • +"java programmer" vs +"c programmer" vs +"python programmer" vs +"perl programmer" vs +"objective-c programmer"
  • +"transact-sql programming" +"2014" vs +"transact-sql programming" vs +"perl programming" +"2014" vs +"perl programming" vs +"cobol programming" +"2014" vs "cobol programming"

    ...and the madness of +"basic programming" +"perl" +"2014" vs +"basic programming" +"perl" vs +"basic programming" +"2014"
