Wading through it all, you get to this on page 8:

  | These [the results] are the results of the judgment of one 
  | or several persons for each language. In particular there 
  | were 2 persons to evaluate Erlang, 3 for C++, 2 for Haskell, 
  | 4 for VHDL, 2 for SDL and 2 for ProGram.

I.e. they asked between 4 and 15 people what they thought about
various aspects of one or more language and then put the results in
impressive-looking tables, assigned fancy abbreviations and the odd
greek letter before fudging around.

They conclude that you can't conclude anything from the exercise.

I agree completely.
