    What is your favorite programming language to use?

    What is your favorite programming language to use for Ubuntu software development, and why? Mine is Python because it is a flexible and easy to use language. Ubuntu also adds a lot of support for it as well. Surprisingly I use to be a huge C#/.NET fan, but then I found Ubuntu's potentiel. =)

    I don't know what the general policy is here on open-ended opinion questions, but this sounds like it could be interesting.

    Of the four languages I consider myself reasonably comfortable in, it's gotta be C, I think. I mean, I like Python too, but it's just not as much fun. Unfortunately C doesn't make as much sense for application development as it used to and so I'll probably stick with Python for my main project.

    For me it's Java.
    Java is Object Oriented and has an extraordinary strength when it comes to programming style and structure, runs everywhere because it's compiled into byte-code which is interpreted by the Java Virtual Machine allowing for code compiled on any operating system like Linux to be executed on any other operating system like Windows or Mac. Any machine that can run a Java Virtual Machine can run Java.

    Python for me too when coding on Linux, one of the reasons being it comes pre-installed on most distros. No need for me to install anything in order to develop with it, nor for the end-user to install to run my software.

    Ruby.

    I find it's the most flexible, easiest to use language I've come across. I'm not a developer, just doing personal projects (web scraping, machine-learning type stuff, scripting), but it does seem to be the most powerful, and easiest to use/understand/get things done language I've tried.

    For actual work: C++
    For mucking about: Python
    For fun: Lisp.

    C or Python, depending on the task. I am too old to program "for fun" anymore.

    Could we add a bonus question, "How many languages do you know in total?" I edited my post. (No need to go listing them all, I don't think.)

    That's rather sad. I hope for me that day is a long way off!

    I prefer C++, Lua, and Python. Lua can be implemented in C/C++ code, so I recommend it for anyone that programs in C or C++.

    PS
    Also, Lua, just like Ubuntu, is open source.
