    I can probably write hello world in ~10 languages.

    Have used Java, C#, ActionScript/JS, PHP "seriously".

    Yeah, it depends on what it meant by "know". For myself, I would count Java, PHP and Python, even though I have been exposed to many other programming/scripting languages. (In fact, I first started out with Javascript.)

    "Know" is a complicated word. But besides C++:

    Feel comfortable around:
    C#, Erlang, ActionScript, Lua

    Need to look up references more often when programming:
    Ruby, Powershell
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    C/C++, Java, Groovy, Perl, Bash, Windows Batch files, VB, Visual Test, Rexx... (although I haven't used the last few for years, so I probably forgot most of those languages)

    Comfortable:
    C, C++, C#, Matlab/Octave

    I've used them a lot, but it's been awhile so I've forgotten things:
    Java, PHP, Python

    Have some knowledge of:
    JavaScript, iShell (a very obscure language), LabVIEW, Flash/ActionScript, BASIC, Logo, Verilog

    Comfortable:
    C, C++ and to some extent SQL, java, php (i know the syntax and general layout, but not used it enough to remember libraries and things like that)

    Less comfortable:
    C#, Haskell, Matlab, VHDL

    Have used:
    Erlang

    1) Know the syntax and a lot about the libraries: Java, JavaScript
    2) Know the syntax, but have to look up most library stuff: C#, Haskell, ActionScript, PHP
    3) Know some of the syntax: Perl, Python, ML, CLisp, VB, D, Eiffel, Forth, PostScript, probably more
    All the buzzt!

    I know C#, VB, VB.Net, QBASIC and C++/CLI (Code Painter).

    I started Ada, R and PHP.

    R is a statistics language which is functional like F#.

    In my case, the more I code in any language, the more I come to the realization that I know very little - there's always something to research. :P

    Hmm... as for the topic and to humor myself, I'd go with php, javascript, visual basic, and the odd C/C++ consolde app.
    I haven't used a compiler in ages, so please be gentle as I try to reacclimate myself. :P
