I'm as old as C.
There are several languages I used professionally which aren't even on that list (e.g. PL/M). But I guess I'm not a complete dinosaur yet; I did more of my work in C than in any other language and apparently it isn't forgotten.

Lets call Shell either 1971 or 1972. It'll be right after C.

I don't see LabView there, either. It's easily the strangest language I ever used; the learning curve was really steep. That's because it's a dataflow language, not a procedural language. A program in Labview looks like a schematic.

I haven't ever heard of some of these... Ruby? Scala? Action Script? R?
Of course, I never got past Basic for both the C-64 and the TRS-80 line, so...

PHP, 18 years on and still tripping over pets and dumping the coffee on the rug.

Actionscript is the name of the programming language used to create SWF files. It looks a lot like C.

I've got a good friend who uses Ruby on Rails for his programming.

Rails is the only reason why Ruby even exists. It's a pest like PHP (although it's way ahead as a language). Of course now that I grabbed a foothold, it's gotten into places like Puppet. So we're going to be stuck with it for another 20 years.
