There are many languages and platforms out there to choose from. Which one do you use? Why? What features do you like from it?

I prefer Java because it is platform independent. But generally use VB6 if my programs are for the PC only.

Other, it all depends on the application.

Business applications with alot of reporting:
Power Builder

Game and Graphics Development:
C/C++

Inernet Programming:
Perl (If speed is a concern)
PHP/ASP (Depending on the webserver)

For apps I use c# because it is fast (dev and execute). If I see the need to write for linux in the future I will use c++/opengl if the .Net linux runtime is not built at that point.

For games, c++ (or c# if they are small and dont need that much performance)

Most of my apps are for people to interact at various locations so I use php for just about all the things I do. Since I run it all on a debian server I also tend to do some perl/bash for common tasks on it.

I would go with VB. It's pretty simple to learn, it makes you look at your code in an object-orientated way (which will make you program using much more concise and efficient methods) allowing you to easily move on to other languages, and is also in use in both Applications and on the internet.

I voted for VB assuming you want to program for Windows. Actualy, there is no one language that fits all purposes. Depending on the need, different language needs to be used.

As per the needs, I keep changing between VB, C/C++, Java and JavaScript.
