Hi everyone,

I've watched this discussion grow with great interest, as not too long ago i
was asking myself the OP's question. I started with C#.NET when i got into
programming, then moved to Java. This is all at work. I taught myself
Python, and will soon be tackling C as well as i can use that to write
Python and Ruby extensions and target Apple devices.

Overall i've chosen to use Python as a general purpose language, C, Java for
mobile development (also a good skill to have as it is in demand) and Ruby
for web dev.

I think it's good to choose a handfull of skills and pursue them
systematically, rather than dabbling in everything and mastering nothing.
Have a brace of languages that cover your bases.
