    Considering this is a C/C++ site, I would say C/C++ for the majority of people.

    I like C++ myself but have not had that much experience with other languages.

    This should probably belong in General Discussions.

    I used to like QBasic. Then I liked Visual Basic. Then I learned C, and there is no going back.
    Away.

    Depends on what kind of problem, do a search on Google to find some answers, I really don't know that much.

    very true. there is no 'one' best language. it always depends on the problem.

    agreed. I don't remember VB, and recent experience with C++ would lead me to say C++.

    There isn't one, otherwise there wouldn't be so many.

    >ok what is the most difficult programming language that you know???
    C++

    >which language will be the last to be chosen if you have to choose???
    It depends on what I'm going to be doing.
    p.s. What the alphabet would look like without q and r.

    any assembly language (they can be fun for solving simple problems but a pain in the *** for more complex stuff)

    C#

    It used to be C++, until I learned that gui programming in mfc is the biggest pain in the ... in the world! And I like windows programming more than console(I don't do console anymore).

    There is no best language. For each problem to solve there is a language best suited for it.

    If I had to choose one language to solve the rest of the problems I encounter in my life, I would probably use C#. The language I would not use if I have any other choice is ASM.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I prefer the only language I come close to knowing, C. I know very little python but so little I couldn't comment on it.
