How the TIOBE index is drive by the iOS money making apps! This month Objective-C has become more popular even than C++. Both Objective-C and C++ started in early 1983 as successors of the C language. Now Objective-C more popular (thanks to the iPhone and iPad), but not as a direct competitor of C++ any more.

The TIOBE Programming Community index is not just an index about what is the best programming language, but an

 indicator of the popularity of programming languages. The index is updated once a month. The ratings are based on the number of skilled engineers world-wide, courses and third party vendors.

I'm glad to see my favorites - C# and Python are still in the top 10. Which are yours? And what position?
