Qualification: It's used more by people that use this site. More C# people use this site because more C# content is available. It's a vicious cycle. –  Anthony Pegram Oct 15 '10 at 15:03
    
@Anthony - or virtuous, depending on how you look at it ;) –  Joel Coehoorn Oct 15 '10 at 15:44

To the extent that their blog followers came here in large numbers, yes. However, the technology behind the site doesn't impact the people who visit it. For all I know, they've secretly switched from ASP.NET MVC to PHP. –  user27414 Oct 15 '10 at 15:48

There are more C# questions here because there are more C# answers here.

There are more C# answers because there are more C# people. And there are more C# people... –  Mark C Oct 15 '10 at 16:41

More and more people are choosing C# as a primary development platform, plus its a fantastic language and technology, so there is lots of questions!
