You’ve probably seen the TIOBE index mentioned again in the chatter on UT. VFP is up to 16 now.
Whilst this is encouraging I’d have to say that having Visual FoxPro above VB.Net (it is at 19) doesn’t sound right to me. Not that I want to sound negative, rather just brace yourself in case Tiobe reviews their index calc in coming months.
The interesting thing for me in the index was to see VB classic move up two positions to 4 (keep in mind this is a product that has already had its Mainstream support retired).
Java, C and C++ slog it out for the top 3 positions.
