this is abit off topic, but fortran is still king for numerical
computing :P many major numerical simulations for computational
chemistry and physics (maths too i guess) are written in f90 and
continue to be written in the newer fortran standards. and octave as
nice as it is often isn't prefered by scientists as it at times lacks
features that these people want (for whatever reason either performance
or features).
