They will all die.

Eventually, there will come another bytecoded language to end all 
bytecoded languages.
One bytecoded language to rule them all, if you will.
Until someone makes a slightly incompatible version of it, and we end 
up with two.
Slowly, they become popular, then die off, in favor of some slightly 
better or worse bytecoded language with a prettier front end syntax or 
nicer graphical development environment.
Half the programmers then spend time simply moving apps from one 
bytecoded language to another, while the other half make new apps in 
one of the new ones.
Repeat until world ends.
