Topic for a panel discussion?

"Given the 1,000,000X improvement in cost-performance since C++ was unveiled in 1979, most programmers have moved on to more productive languages."
- David Patterson, Communications of the ACM, July, 2012, p. 104

What do you envision the discussion to be about?

While it can be argued that other languages are more productive (both in terms of how easy it is to express things as well as the tools built around them), it's looking more like people are moving to other languages because of the platforms they are developing for than anything inherent in the language itself.

For instance, if you look at TIOBE, Objective-C is making huge gains because you need it to program Apple devices. Is it growing for other uses? I just don't see it.

That being said, I'm not sure what exactly would be discussed at a panel discussion on this. Please elaborate.
