|According to RedMonk, Java is also ahead of C++ and C#. |
When I mention the most used language or the higher consumer market, I go about what brings the most economic value. Software used by corporations for their accounting, for their airplanes, for their traffic lights, for their tanks and so forth, is mostly done with C++ and some with C#… Games actually are the biggest financial software market, and most of them are still done with C++. Game apps made with Java for Smartphones is nothing compared to the multi-billion Console and desktop game industry. Aswell, there are more cars then there are Smartphones and car chips are not made with Java. The most used softwares and OS at work places are still Windows XP, Microsoft Office and Simply accounting. Most PoS systems and industrial softwares are also all coded with either C++ of C#... mostly C++ actually. And though an app sells for $2 to $3 each, some PoS systems sell for $80,000.
People have a real misconception when it comes to the software industry; They forget that even their coffee machine has a chip in it, and that chip was more likely made with C, C++ or ASM.
|The problem is desktop is already a niche market|
Smartphones are not replacing desktop/laptops. They are widely used, but when the average person goes to work they use a desktop/laptop, when they get home from work, same thing; desktop/laptop. Most used operating system:
that’s current 2013.
|Good 70% of mobile is Android which is Java.|
Android OS was coded with mostly C / C++
Many Android apps are done with C# using Mono.
Also please read this:
there is a lot C# can do that Java cant.
Anyways, this is a pointless argument. People can love whatever language they want. But this is after all a C++ forum, which means it will get stronger support for C++. In my past searches I’ve always found way more jobs that asks for C++ , C#, PHP and python. But that’s does not mean you can’t make it with Java. I just personally dislike Java, as well as Apple.
