I would liken this to tethering - you could get apps that enabled tethering on Android years ago, but they were never as reliable as the baked-in feature, once that arrived on the platform.
Not wanting to partake in some OS rivalry rant; was just making a point that in this instance a system feature is an advantage over an app.
There doesn't seem to be quite so much software written in it anymore, at least not in the open source world. Delphi at least used to be quite a big business as I understand it but I'd question whether or not anyone has good reasons for starting new important things in that, rather than maintaining existing stuff. But Pascal dialects aren't my area of expertise, so I'm an outside observer there, thus damned if I know.
While I don't think education needs languages that are widely used in business, it's probably a desirable trait. Over here, it seems like a degree and about as many years experience is key to not getting one's resume auto ignored.
