Hmmm, of all the categories this is the most difficult to pick just ONE. Of the languages I use and that are listed:
Python is really nice and easy to use. The biggest drawback for me is it's use of whitespace for delimiters instead of braces or keywords.
C is a great language that lacks easy string manipulation (at least without some third-party library).
C++ is essentially the same as C with a few additions (e.g., classes).
C# is a horrible language which is compounded by the mess that is .Net. It's only redeeming qualities are the easy string manipulation and lambda expressions.
Lua is a very interesting language that shows a lot of promise.
Fortran -- what can I say about Fortran (so I won't :P).
And the winner is . . . Lua 5.2 (released mid-December) for the potential it holds. I have big designs for it in the coming year and I hope it won't disappoint.
