My favourite has to be C#. It's the language I've used for years, and the one I'm just best with. It pains me how MS controlled and windows-centric it is.

I know Python... kinda. Syntax is fine but when it comes to doing anything more than a simple in-and-out console script I'm clueless. I've been meaning to look into the various graphics and UI libraries but I've never gotten far.

I know Lua solely because of the Love2D framework, and it's nice to work with, even with its little quirks (the arrays (or Tables, as they're called) start at 1...)

Imagine starting a sequence of numbers at 1. Who would do that?

Honestly I was poking fun at the convention that counting starts from zero, which blows the minds of the many programming newbies who count like they do on Sesame Street.

The amount of lua scripts I've looked at with -1s jammed in every for loop (usually with a comment complaining) is crazy.

Oh yeah forgot about Lua, really like the language for how simple and easy to implement in another language it is.
