I voted python, but only because it's what I'm most familiar with. However, I'm disappointed that bash isn't included. Surely the bash shell can be considered a programming environment in its' own right.

EDIT: Just noticed that BASIC isn't there either. Are there even any BASIC environments anymore? Oh, and I cut my teeth on COBOL. Lovely language if you have to follow someone who doesn't believe in documenting code.

Makes you think of the parable about the blind men and the elephant.

Can't argue with that...unless you don't know the tools. I guess I only use the tools I know.

C…mostly because it's what I know, though. IMO it's also at just the right level of abstraction: not too high (Java, C#, etc.; ack, overhead), not too low (asm; blergh, tedium).

I would include C++, but I'm terrible at OOP; I only know the basics.

Lua

I've recently learned this language and really really like it. It is clean, simple, super fast and easy to write programs in. Everything I could ever want in a programing language. That is why Lua gets my vote.

Despite Common Lisp being my all-time favourite, and having used (almost nothing but) Python for the past few years, I have started delving into Erlang, and am really enjoying it.
