C#, no doubts. Easy, powerful, loads of Tools for it.

Haha. Python is old, Java is low brow, C is hard, LISP sounds crazy, Mono I've never heard of, C++ is hard, Ruby is very rare and hard to implement, Visual Basic is a bit simple, not so powerful, Miranda is a woman, PHP is a Web Programming Language but would be a good idea I suppose, and what the devil is TCL?

C# is easy, works powerfully, has easy to find .NET Tools, can be written in the free Visual Studio 2005, works on Windows great, not sure if it works on Linux but that wouldn't be too much of a loss, and it is seriously simple to learn, and great for then learning C++. Visual Basic is much the same, but it is very different and would not make it easier to learn C++ afterwards.

I'm learning C++, I got sick of VB after using it in school for a couple of years.

C++ is powerful but it gets complicated, so watch yourself.

For some reasons, Universities throw Java at you, can't think why because it's cack really.

Haha. I don't like Google and you know that I'd MSN Search it, but I really don't have time. If you haven't seen, we have about three Moderators who are getting Moderitus and fear I'm undermining them :P

C++ would be the best bet I think... but C# would be the easiest, and you could move onto C++ from there. There are no end of Microsoft books on it too!

A bit on Mono, its an attempt to make an open source version of .Net and bring C# to Linux...I think....

Oh yeah! I know Mono now. It's not really a programming language though, it is an Assembly to run ASPX on Apache. The programming language of it is ASPX and .NET.
