I've been looking into this a bit myself. I've come to the following conclusions.

1) Javascript, only widespread in webpages.

2) Java, clunky, non-standard GUI. :(

3) Python, excellent & powerful code. Done correctly, cross-platform. Major negative=no easy way to compile an .exe.

4) C++, The standard! Nearly all major apps are built with it. Combined with the GUI builder Qt, it's awesome. Major negative=difficult to learn

5) C#, M$'s 'improvement' on C++. IIRC, you can only develop with it in Visual Studio.

6) .NET, M$ proprietary code. Only cross-platform if you develop in linux using 'Mono'. Heavy dependency for users to install .NET.

turbo pascal!

(if anyone remembers that you get a gold star)


I had Turbo Pascal 5.5 (with Object Oriented Programming). It came on many 5.25" floppies with three fat manuals. And it ran from DOS! Fun days, indeed. :)

Depends on what you want to do. For scripting, app-deployment, Active Directory and that kind of stuff: Visual Basic. For programming real applications: C, C++ or even C#. Edit: And for web development, I'd go LAMP: Apache, MySQL + PHP.

I think python would be nice. It's an interpreter rather than a compiler language like c,c++. You may use python for prototyping purpose for quick developing. I have been coding, scripting scientific programs with fortran,matlab mathematica,r,c for a time but I have switched to python and I recommend you to use it.
