C++ has my vote.

Although I like Java also, but I find C++ much more powerful for low-level and system programming.

I'm moving to Python from C++ and Java. PHP for the Web, though, I pretty much suck at all of them...

I use Java most. But my prefered language is Javascript. Because by using W3C DOM + W3C CSS + W3C XHTML + standard Javascript, you make easily fast and clean dynamic GUI applications. Of course, the step beyond is to use XML, XSL, but then, it depends more on the server's capabilities.

I have been programming in java for sometime, but currently trying my hand in C.
I will prefer java over C, simpler to code and ...debug .

I'm still deciding on a "favorite" language. At the moment I'd say Perl, but I'm also looking into Python & Java.
