    If you can't understand a relation as simple as...

    all I'm just saying is does the efficient use of linux is based on market shares of programming languages ?

    And what evidence do you have for your thinking?

    Depends on what type of programming you might expect to do under Linux but I guess that you'd need working knowledge of C, Python, Perl and sh, as a minimum.

    In your original post, you said this: "What programming languages should we know to professionally work with linux"

    So, yes, in the general case, market forces determine what languages you should learn to have a greater chance of landing your preferred job. After all, it is nearly always going to be your employer who tells you what language you will be coding in. Also, most of the time you never get the chance to write new code [this is as much true in the Open Source Linux world as with the Microsoft arena]; you'll be maintaining (debugging/patching) existing codebases that were written X years ago.

    However, in the specific case, you can go your own path and specialise in whatever language is your favourite, but you will be narrowing your employment opportunities by a large degree.

    I dont need any jobs about this. I'm just doing it for hobby or maybe more. But not for somebody
