It looks like D is up against only the bread and butter languages now.

Just curious, what's up with Pascal's late 2007 spike?
http://www.tiobe.com/index.php/paperinfo/tpci/Pascal.html

Since Tiobe mostly measures buzz, let's all buzz!  (I wonder whether 
Walter's Code Talk is what's primarily responsible for turning around the 
Q1-08 slump?)

There might be evidence, that the changes for the Digital Mars D 
Programming Language are related to some "brownian motion" in the 
worldwide buzz.

Writing articles about D is almost as important as writing code.

Perhaps D is misrepresented?  There should be twice as much buzz given 
that there are in essence two languages (Phobos and Tango).

I would have hoped that my work on the snapshots would have at least 
caused a rise in the usage of D.  They probably haven't been around long 
enough to start making an impact then.  One can only hope...

do you have download stats? I get the feeling that there are a lot of lurkers 
out there.

An un-cited reference to D?

GForge reports 560 downloads since I moved over to GForge.  I wonder if 
that's just bots or whether it's real people.

I wonder.

I'd bet TIOBE uses some algorithms, however trivial they may be, to see 
the difference between the article and genuine "D buzz".

One-letter languages like C must have taught them to do better than to 
google for "C" or "D".
