O'Reilly sizes-up computer market for 2008

O'Reilly Radar has this great article on the popularity of programming languages, as reflected by book sales.

It notes that c#, ruby, actionscript and Python are up in sales, and C# is the fastest growing market:

"Ruby was a small box last year and is now 8 largest language passing Perl and Python and is now knocking on the door for Visual Basic's spot.

Ruby has the second largest unit growth after C# and went from 4% overall market share to 5% and is 4k units off of displacing VB for #7 overall. C# was equally impressive with a 36,811 unit growth or 18.85% growth and went from 11% market share in 2006 to 13% market share in 2007.

At the rate it is going, it should surpass Java as the number one language this year as it is only (9,526) units short and is on a positive 18.85% growth rate while Java continues its slide at a (14.16%) clip."

 The major languages each sold more than 20,000 units in Q1 '07. These are what I consider the major languages.
