It depends on the availability of ways to deploy code written in other languages. Today you can only use JavaScript if you want to create application which works in browser and does not require installation. Java is basically dead (because Sun/Oracle were unable to make it adequately safe), Flash is dying (Apple succeeded in killing it) so what's left? JavaScript.

There are some interesting projects in development, but I'm not sure we'll have a choice of anything besides JavaScript any time soon. But to use JavaScript outside of web development? That's insanity, pure and simple.
