Which language should I learn?
Which language is better?
Java rules, C/C++ drools.
BASIC can do more than C/C++.

Shall I go on?These are kind of ridiculous since they are posted on a
C/C++ programming board

emphasis:C/C++ programming board

I've yet to figure out in all my years here why people come here thinking they are going to convince the masses that another language is better or a better choice than C/C++.
Even if there were a better choice, which there isn't, you think we'd ever admit to it here?

Please let's talk C/C++ on the programming forums since that's what this board is about. More and more I'm seeing language questions come up in the C board, C++ board, Game dev board, etc. They belong here, if they belong anywhere.

Thanks in advance to any future computer language crusaders and/or evangelists who might drop in. Your efforts are in vain, though.

Off to the Chevy board to ask which is better....Chevy or Ford.

>Which language should I learn?
It's a fair question, though not a very smart one to ask in such a biased forum. ;) However, there are a few objective people here who can answer it properly.

>Which language is better?
This is a silly question most of the time. It's asked out of ignorance, and in that I agree with you Bubba.

>Java rules, C/C++ drools.
Senseless trolling, just like our Python advocate. ;)

>BASIC can do more than C/C++.
Uninformed opinion with a little insanity mixed in. These questions should be shot too.

>you think we'd ever admit to it here?
Yes. To deny the faults of C or C++ would be silly.
