Default How many VS developers are there all over the world?

Hi,

Can someone point me to a reference showing an estimation of how many Visual Studio developers are there across the world? How many Java developers are there across the world?

Thanks

Man Java gets a free ride even though it an its IDE are but the waste product of my experience. Java APIs are trash and their documentation is thusly.

Unless I miss something, that values are for 2005.. I wouldn't trust them, even in 2005 because there is no source of the data... google has to have a better poll somewhere..

Oh sorry about that. I didn't read it properly. In any case, a rather recent book on algorithms in C# stated that it is getting more popular.
