What does woodworking have to do with languages?

You should definetely choose Python. What other response do you expect
from c.l.python newsgroup?

A good second choice would be Ruby (comp.lang.ruby,
each Rubyist will advice those two in exactly the opposite priority :)

VB is Evil, C++ is extremely complex and JScript is not a complete language.
Java isn't fun and Smalltalk isn't practical. Don't know about C# and J#.
Note that I have all this from second hand, I myself only know Python. 4.5
years ago, I asked a similar question and got Python as an answer.

I am very happy with it.
