No single thing like...mostly:

C for Linux Kernel & Embedded (ARM & other MCUs) stuff
C++ Telecom/OSS
Java - mostly J2ME (Mobile Apps, say on Symbian), Comm API, Embedded etc. I do use Swing whenever it's possible (seamless Design).

I would say C/C++.

Knowing any of this languages makes learning the others more easy.

Also the Linux kernel,and a major part of the Linux programs and utilities are coded in C
