There are some good papers there, thanks for sharing the link.

A few years ago I presented a paper at PPIG on some studies we had done on C#: 
http://www.ppig.org/papers/13th-clarke.pdf. Since then I and my colleagues have 
done some similar work looking at API usability. For example: 
http://www.ppig.org/papers/18th-stylos.pdf.

Hope this helps.

Steven
