Why do you think a language succeeds... it being the best language for a 
task, or because of momentum (people fear learning languages) and marketing 
(when somebody is deciding which language to start off by learning, they are 
by definition not in a position to choose a good language over a bad one, and 
might well want to learn a language that others are likely to be using anyway 
since they want career prospects :-)
