Who's doing the searching?
I find it interesting that Python is now in the lead as the "new language to learn". I wonder if this is because everyone who wants to learn Java already has. Are these queries more from people who know Java and want to learn a new language or people just starting out trying to learn thier first coding language? If Python is as simple as you imply it could be a gateway language for new programmers.
