Beginner programmer, which language
Well as the title states im a beginner programmer, the deepest my programming language goes is intermediate HTML. I was considering now with linux maybe to get into programming, but i cant decide which language would be the best to begin with to get a sturdy base. I have no real preferences but i have been considering maybe C++, but im not real sure of how complex it is as far as being a language. My goal is to just design basic progs, nothing really fancy maybe some small tools.
Also i only know about C++ cause i have not really learned what the other languages are, cause when i had a windows box i considered doing C++ but never got around to doing so.
Also sorry about the long post, i just wanted to say everything that seemed relevant
