Real programmers use C
Anybody who sacrifices efficiency/speed for programming ease is wrong.

If you vote for Java, then you can't be my friend. If you vote for ASM then you are far better than me and I am not worthy of being your friend.

Wait, are you kidding me?! ASM isn't even a choice!

I suggest creating a 'Statistical/Computational package' category, move R there, along with any of Octave, Maxima, Sage, etc.

@ Mr Alex - Oooooooooooooo, yesyesyes...the grandma of programming languages, forgot about that. Though, Forth, now there was a challenge. But, yes, Assembler, ah, too bad. So much interest, so little time...

Yeah, if you write software in assembly then you rule. There's just no denying that. I am not that good, but hope to learn some day.

So what - there's a lot more Java programmers that are friends...and besides, the choice of program language is totally isolated from the choice of friends...

Not necessarily, it all depends on who you ask. Maybe for you the two are separate.

I really appreciate Erlang and all lisp flavours I have used (less these days since I do quite a lot of Erlang now).

I started learning about functional programming some month ago. Now I'm learning lisp which I voted for.

Fortran, this guy is a winner. Your punctuation and capitalization sucks, but your programming language choice is quite noble.

The Zen of Python is the way to go!

Strange that JavaScript's not included, as it plays such a huge role for the Web.
