I have heard availability of tools and engineers cited as reasons for this
shift. C has benefited from being used as a general purpose language
for Unix and variants, which themselves have done well overall over
the last couple of decades. 

Note that I am trying not to express any opinion on the fitness
of one language or another for either general purpose programming
or embedded programming.
