I want to know why nobody is interested to program in java with linux ???
I am a Java engineer and I prefer to work in Linux. I do have worries now that Evil Oracle has bought Sun. It's got me curious about gcj.

Hi -

Those worries are well-founded

But if portability is a concern ... or if you're programming in Android ... or if you simply want a "standard" Java without any "quirks"

... then I would strongly urge you to avoid GJC, and stick with Sun Java.

IMHO...

Python is great, but C gets my vote. Can't beat the original.

Perl got my vote. Technically, a tie between perl and C.

Thanks for the link. I used Fortran for simulation of laser chamber a long time ago.

Voted Java, though C is where my heart lies ;^) Which is what I'd have to pick for the all time programming language.

I see nothing so far about Go (or is that Go! ??? I just can't keep the two straight).

Anyway, It's championed by Google, and Ken was one of it's major players wrt to its creation - and it is indeed in the list (Who are those guys that are picking C# anyway???).

I would pick C, but Ruby is comin' on like gangbusters so I'm givin' it my vote.

Besides, C will always be Mom

Question

And why is Perl and PHP There when the sh variants (sh/bash/ash/dash/ksh/tksh/zsh) and Tcl aren't?

Don't get me wrong, I believe Perl and PHP should be there, but I would expect Tcl and Bash to be too, all things considered

I voted c++. I think C just has some non sence in it that is where c++ fixed it imo and c# I dont' think I really like much of MS projects even though I haven't tried it. But What I do like about c++ or c based language once you learn that then learning stuff like python and perl are much easier. So I guess I'll prolly wait till AT&T labs release a new c version since they seem pretty good at it.

I've added Tcl. There are enough shell variants that we've decided not to add any to this category. There used to be a Shell of the Year category, but it was removed due to lack of participation. If there's sufficient demand it's possible we'd bring it back.

How come you still haven't added Vala yet?

---------- Post added 2011-01-23 at 09:04 ----------

And I still don't see Tcl in the poll at all.
