That’s a good reason??? PHP is also a dominant language for (server-side) web applications, but it’s also an awful language for serious software engineering. Perl used to be a dominant language for web applications, too, but it’s widely despised; in fact, it’s been in major decline over the years. Being dominant is a weak-minded reason for choosing a programming language when you know that it’s deeply flawed and when you know there are better alternatives available.
