What’s hot, what’s not in scripting languages

Since I’ve graduated from the university, I used conventional programming languages(like assembly or c/c++) only few times. On the other hand, I employ scripting languages constantly to solve some task or to automate some process. They are like system administrator’s bread and butter. And if you trying to decide, what scripting language to learn next, you could check this interesting article, named “From PHP to Perl: What’s hot, what’s not in scripting languages”. Well, the author looks at them from a web developer’s point of view, but the article is interesting nonetheless; it provides kinda nice overview.
