Where is Eiffel. I love this language, but don't get to use it much. I finally learnt OO when I learn Eiffel.

My vote goes to Python. I am not really a programmer and I tried a lot of others in the last 15 years and nothing came close to what I can do now in Python (GUIs and such), with that little effort and when I find code again, I can actually understand it.
I think that Python has the most advantages of any high-level programming language and the least disadvantages:
1. open source, no company dominating or restricting it (or messing it up)
2. plattform independence
3. clean syntax, the least typing effort, easy on the eyes
4. modern: devoid of legacy garbage that piled up over the years (which you can see nicely in Java)

and in my book you cannot really compare a high-level language (java, python) with a low-level (C, C++), they live in different worlds and have other ideal areas of usage, the same as you don't compare a 747 and a fighter jet: they are perfectly adapted to their specialized field of use.

Oh, you and me both... I was used to C-Style syntax and logic, but LISP has such an odd, but effective way of doing things. It's strangely enlightening...

I think Assembly / Assembler should be in the list. But I vote C for now.

I agree. Reminds me of one of my best ideas: they've got Python4Kids, right? Why not Assembly for kids? Those kids need to mov up a notch! *heh heh heh*

But seriously, folks, C++ is programming language of the year.

-Boost
-Qt
-GTK
