Normally I would choose C, but lately I've been liking Object-Orientated programming a lot more. So my vote this year is C++. Second place would be bash.

(Free) Pascal is missing. Just mention it because I use it a lot for making small programs for personal needs (with lazarus).

Fortran

Still the powerful and easy-to-use programming language for scientific computing

You forgot OCaml. A language that helps "thinking", where "segmentation violation" is impossible to get and that is worth to be better known.

Learning many of these

I'm trying to learn LISP and C so I almost voted for them but I remember how awesome C# was and I just voted for it like I did last year.
