2006 Year-End Language Version Wrapup

At the year end, to help give a sense of progress of time, we present the current versions of some of our programming language and tools favorites.

We close this list with a quote from the British computer scientist who created the ML programming language when asked "Did you learn Greek or Latin?":

"I learned Greek from the age of ten and Latin from the age of eight and I regarded them both as a kind of defective form of mathematics because they were taught with such accuracy."
