not only almost top 20, but double the amount than any other JVM based 
language? (that I could spot on the list with a quick look at least). 
And the difference between places 22 and 21 is much bigger than between 
places 21 and 20.

All that said... this is TIOBE. Many of their results look random, big 
jumps do happen easily. And you cannot follow their method with google 
giving region specific results as well as the many other things they 
index. I tried to reproduce their results years ago... was a big failure.

It can give an indicator for trends though, which is why I find this 
page more interesting:

Sadly this page also shows how unreliable this index is... we have been 
anywhere between 16 and 106 in the last 13 years. So please be careful 
with "overhyping" this ;)
