List Of Languages That Compile To the Java Virtual Machine

I was chatting with a former co-worker of mine over IM, and he mentioned hearing that more languages compile to the Java Virtual Machine than the .NET CLR on a podcast. I was kind of surprised to hear this, so I googled it, and sure enough, there are around 200 languages listed which compile to the JVM.

Microsoft has always touted how many different languages you can write in for the .NET platform (which according to this Wikipedia entry is around 40), but this list easily trumps that of the CLR.
