Since I only know bits and pieces of both C++ and PHP, and php annoys me less, it gets my vote.

Most "powerful"? Lisp.

Most underrated? JavaScript/ECMAscript.

Most invisible/ignored? 'sh' script.

I voted for Scheme, which combines all of these ;-)

I second this, Javascript should be in the poll.

Python and it's implementations for sure. I'm not a pro at Python but I just love it. Previously C / C++ / C# was keeping me busy, but Python has changed that. It makes my code really short, readable and understandable.

Yeah seriously how is Fortran not an option here. In my experience Fortran is still a big player the scientific computing world. Anyway I voted for Python for its parallizability...

Where is FreePascal ? I could vote for Lazarus but not for it's language.
Of all the Languages I've used there are only 2 that can create really standalone native binaries. C/++ and Pascal.
I create all my Utils with Lazarus/FreePascal to use on Linux and Windows (as needed) and has a small memory footprint.

Really tough for me to vote between PHP, PERL, Python & Ruby. I use them all & they're all great but PHP gets my vote as I still find myself coding in it the most.
