In the past year ColdFusion has made a *HUGE*
leap forward on the TIOBE Programming Community Index
for April 2006 compared to April of 2005. ColdFusion has climbed 9 positions from #24 to #15. Ruby also made a huge leap upward climbing 14 spots landing in at #18. I expect next year it will surpass ColdFusion with no problem -- not that I think ColdFusion is dying or a weaker language, just that Ruby has huge momentum right now.
