Language as a selling point for applications

Lately I’ve noticed a lot of applications claim that they have been written in so and so language. It is as if being written in Python, Ruby or for that matter any other language somehow makes the application special. On the contrary the language in which an application is written hardly tells anything about the application itself. The only thing that it tells me is whether I can read through the source code in the given language or not. I hope people describe the virtues of their applications in some other form.
