As we move forward, the browser will become the platform and the OS will become irrelevant. The assembly of the future is javascript, and tools like GWT (which "compiles" java into javascript) are the compilers of the future

There is certainly a push in that direction. It is a push that I, for one, resist. I don't support the concept of cloud computing, and I don't want my data to be "out there" someplace.

Here, here! I agree. My data, my storage media. Not that I have anything embarrassing in my /home directory (I keep it all in some inconspicuous folder in /var - *hehehe*) it's just a realm of control over your own stuff; you don't buy a house to have some random stranger mediate it for you.

z/OS assembler rules

btw for you guys who think browser-OS is the next big thing, think again- it's the next big yawn.

Read my /etc/hosts:

127.0.0.1 www.google.com
127.0.0.1 google.com
127.0.0.1 groups.google.com

right down the pipes where they belong.

Definately ETH Oberon.
Pascal + separated compilation without falling into pascal variations like turbo/object/...pascal.
Perfect to show the use of OO programming style

This is the worst poll of the bunch...

...and the choices are not all that I would like to have seen.

I chose Java, with 5 and now 6 I think it has advanced nicely.

Personally I have been playing with Euphoria, it's a ton of fun, recently began revisiting Perl, and am looking forward to Perl 6... but I also play a lot with Python and Ruby and PHP... I just love every language!

Erlang is pretty cool too... and some of the newer scripting LISP-like languages...

SO MANY COOL LANGUAGES OUT THERE!

But just as important as the data is the ability to *do* anything, anywhere. Browser compatibility is currently an issue, and when Javascript runs everything, it'll be even more of an issue. Plus, what do you do when you're unable to connect to the internet? Stop working? Makes the whole "laptop" concept useless.

No Gambas? Gah I can't deal with the semi colens no more. The longer I use those things the more I hate them. Gambas rocks. You should add it to the list.
