Notice where C is in that list?

Yes, but C specifically solves a problem that other languages really do not, or do not do well: embedded programming. And for embedded programming, C is as good as ever. It makes sense to use C in embedded programming since Object Oriented languages are overkill for the most part. I guess anything can be compiled down but good old C just works.

I know that do UIs use javascript and html

That's my point also. If a person is working on a desktop or app type of thing then Java hasn't provided a great way to build UIs. And since HTML / CSS is there, why not just use that since you app will "deploy" in multiple worlds.

Also, now with dotnet core you can run your ASP.NET MVC web site on Linux* so easily so why would anyone even choose Java EE / JSP etc?

I just worked through getting an ASP.NET MVC web site running on a DigitalOcean droplet (Debian) and it worked so well it was amazing. .NET dev on Linux is very easy now so Java will probably lose more ground.
