I would love to see some hard numbers on this for the job market as a
whole.  I strongly suspect that your company is an exception.

As an example, in my IM list I have 33 developers in almost as many
companies.  Two code primarily in C++.  6 have moved from C++ to C# or
Java in the past 5 years; none have moved the other way.

C++ is history repeated as tragedy. Java is history repeated as farce.  --Scott McKay
