saw this and though i would put in my 2 cents, since i know a couple of these languages.
-PHP is purely web based. i would never run it on any software other then web software, and if it doesnt get a great deal better at its built in security it will soon be replaced by coldfusion of ruby.
-Python, its purely a glue language get some data from one program massage it send it to another. It cant add worth a crap, and i personally think that really hurts it, but its a pretty user friendly language.
-Perl, never touched it but have only heard good things.
-ASP very little experience here but it seems to be just another version of php. without all the support.
-Java great language for offline software, even though it has the power to run online applications they are terrible and slow. Really nice that its platform independent and has the potential to be a winner, if they can speed it up a little.
-Ruby, havent touched it.
-Lisp, this is my bet at a language taking off in the near future. Great for AI, and since AI is a newish and very quickly growing area i think it will become very popular. but to my knowledge its needs another language such as C/C++ or java for more interactivity, but there is probably a way i just havent figured it out yet.
