According to this research assembler is pretty popular programming language.
It is in the upper half of the chart and definitely is more popular than many others.

@DOS386: Yes, but these results of those polls are limited to this board alone, of course assembly is going to be more popular on an assembly dedicated message board!

I repost this interesting message to another board. 1 Hope it's fine.

I often surfing within the pages of GitHub and Stack Overflow.
There are many interesting topics and projects related to assembly language.
It is remarkable if we consider that it is a programming language some 60 years old.
It seems that today the language can be applied in many application areas.
If I had to guess i would say that it will continue to be around for long.

Like Coty said, it depends who you're asking. C, Python, shell scripting, etc. will probably be very popular among *nix users/developers. But as you can see, even there assembly is relatively popular.

IMO. Assembly is so popular(they don't even know it) since it's the closest thing to CPU byte code. Every other language will interpret / assemble it's grammar/dialect to the host's CPU code.

According to this research Asm is more popular than Vala, Boo, CoffeScript, Factor and W++. Did anybody expect anything else?

... and also more popular than Visual Basic, Delphi, Tcl, ColdFusion, Lisp, Prolog and Ada. What I didn't expected actually.

i think assembly is like any other langage finally.

theses days, i hear a lot of langages names at office:
here the list, ordered by occurences:

JAVA
C++
ASSEMBLY
XML
C
HTML
SQL
PHP
AS400

the rest is not used.

the assembly is popular in a way a C++ coder will speak about a disassembly of his code during debug.
idem for java coders, they frequentlly deal with bytecode assembly keywords in their job, for example when the idea shows a strange message with bytecode inside.

assembly is fundamental.
there are various huge architectures built onto. and is fun.
