These characteristics makes programming languages successful :


Generality (suitable for a wide range of problems)
Extensibility (can easily be extended with new abstractions)
Novelty (solves a certain domain of problems far better than existing alternatives)
Familiarity (e.g., C-like syntax)
Availability (low cost + ported to multiple platforms)
Popularity (associated with an emerging, widely-used platform)
Utility (readily-available libraries for common tasks / integration with existing tools)
