Yes, that was confusing too. But it makes no sense to plot
ranking on a linear scale, they should plot actual numbers. The
plot they provide says nothing meaningful about the relative
position of the various languages IMO.
Unfortunately for "D", it is also a language that is often
misclassified in these shallow analyses. For instance the ".d"
file extension is used for other things than dlang etc.
And does it actually make any sense to compare languages like
Python and C++? Completely different domains.
This is only partially true, as I know from a friend, he is
physicist @ DESY Hamburg, he is programming exactly with this
pair of languages for data analysis.
(Could not convince him to try D jet :-))
