C going up the list, actually top of the list

JavaImage via Wikipedia
What is C's rise to the top (again) have got to do with me? I mean, I'm using C# in the .NET package, and also VB and ASP. And though I wanted to delve into Java, I've not gone close enough, or even near, to be considered an intermediate-, or even a beginner-level at that.

But for those of you out there who are into Java and C programming languages, I think this news matters. It may be actually dictating the trend (and future employability) of software developers in this arena.

Read on:

"After more than 4 years C is back at position number 1 in the TIOBE index. The scores for C have been pretty constant through the years, varying between the 15% and 20% market share for almost 10 years. So the main reason for C's number 1 position is not C's uprise, but the decline of its competitor Java. Java has a long-term downward trend. It is losing ground to other languages running on the JVM. An example of such a language is JavaFX, which is now approaching the top 20."
