It is a cool topic for debate... i like C++ and Java. A better way to judge which language you should learn is to look at the market.

There is no best programming language. It's all depends on what task you have to do. You want to program desktop applications ? Then Delphi or C++ is an excellent choice. You want to develop dynamic web pages ? Then Java, PHP, ASP or ASP.Net is the best languages you could use.

I agree 100%. Depending on the task at hand, choose your programming language.

i like java and that the programming language i use. i think is because of its open source nature, but one disadvantage of java is that it is slow.

Java for me is the best programming language. In the market, .net and java programmers are highly paid but Java i think is more object oriented than .net. Out of topic, we have openings for java programmers. Fresh graduates are very much welcome... Just send me a note and I'll provide you the details.

But java is not designed for desktop applications. Besides, all modern programming languages can connect to any databases. For web applications, java is good. Have you tried other languages for web applications ?

I think C++ is the better programming language, which is the most powerful tools in this language. VB, JAVA are also available now a days for programming but in my view C++ is the better.

In my opinion, there's really no best programming language. Each of them has their own strength and weaknesses. I think the best way to look at it is to look at the market as what the thread starter said.

I think it's java. in a way it's pretty slow but the fact that it can be compiled to run on different platform is a great idea. like a universal language. well maybe they can get it running more fast. in my own personal opinion i think java is slow because the syntax are very long and the virtual machine makes interpreting the program more slower.

This is a good topic. As far as versatility goes, I'd say C++ is King of the Hill. As far as the market goes, I understand that VB is the most widely used, followed by Cobol.
