Man all I could say to you is that it really depends on where you want to focus.. Mos utilities will migrate to web eventually.. so if you want to develop utility software you should focus on something like Rails. Now if you want to get into the business market i can focus on .NET or Java which will be here for a long while. There is no sign that these two languages will have a replacement soon or in the next 5 - 10 years.

Yeah, web programming is definitely the future. In addition to Ruby you should make sure you know your HTML, CSS, PHP, etc. And XML and RSS are quite common in Web 2.0 stuff. You could check out RDF, and other semantic web/web 3.0 programming out too, if you would like to make sure you've got it all covered. Web programming seems to be all about three letter acronyms.

I think .NET languages and Java will be futuristic.
