Yes I know it’s a bit old, but I stumbled on it again and couldn’t resist because it seems to provoke some kind of nerdgasm amongst techies. Funny as hell and incredibly well done.

Also enjoy a HN thread pertaining to this video, to get an idea of how the crowd reacted when this video popped up.

C overwhelmingly proved the most popular programming language for thousands of new open-source projects in 2008, according to license tracker Black Duck Software.

As you can see from google trends Java has been above C in popularity for quite some years but starting with 2008 C regained it’s rightfully owned Godfather of Languages title.Many causes for this are flowing through my mind but i am just going to mention one: Embedded Devices.

C will never die!Not as long as i am here.The following fair usage of Google Trends will show you why you shouldn’t worry that C will disappear overnight while you are sleeping like a baby. 😉
