This paper proposes a technique to detect the chance of programming languages used in Apache, Mozilla and Ubuntu surviving from a forking perspective. This line of investigation is important because there is currently no evidence showing which programming language is sustainable in the context of forking. Moreover, there is little evidence to compare and analyse open source project programming language continuity. The research outcome showed Apache, Mozilla and Ubuntu are different types of programming languages that are sustainable can increase their survivability. The more sustainable a programming language is, the more forking is expected. In contrast, a less sustainable a programming language is, the less likely the programming language will survive.
