Me: C, Perl on Linux.
I've also touched C++, Lisp, Haskell, PHP, ADA, but
only for a while, when I was looking for something
to learn after C and Perl. I've chosen Python :>

I'm programming in Python for about a year,
but at first it was only a short meeting, 
only since Python 2.1c2 it's love :>

On one of the polish news groups Marcin 'Qrczak' Kowalczyk
was often recommending Python.
