Paul Graham claims that startups should use the most powerful language for a job, like Lisp. I’m looking for statistical evidence for or against this theory.
For example, amongst the thousands of YC startups, have ones that used Lisp or Smalltalk or other esoteric but powerful language succeeded more than startups that used a mainstream language like Python, Java or C++? Do we have statistics of success rate by language?
One should not look at a single startup (ITA software) that used Lisp and succeeded and conclude that it pays for the average startup to use Lisp (or other powerful language like Smalltalk).
