    Some threads were getting filled up with arguments about which language is better and why. This thread is made for said argument. Anyone may chip in here.
    Let the battle begin!

    I think it's odd that you've put Javascript in there, since it's a totally different category (a scripting language, not a programming one like Java)

    That's like saying "Which is better, a hammer or a saw?" Well it depends on what you want to do, doesn't it?

    It's sort of like putting HTML in the options when it clearly doesn't belong :P

    But ignoring that for a moment, I chose C++, though Java is a close second for me.

    It depends on how you use JS. While it is mostly used in webpages, people do occasionally use it with other tools to create stand-alone applications (often mobile apps). Even though HTML and CSS are also used with said tools, all they do is display data.

    I will join the echo of horses for courses.

    I am not going to write a video encoder in python but I am also not going to write a log file parser in assembly.

    I like Visual Basic .NET because it is really easy to learn. So easy in fact, that I could use it when I was 7.

    Java because it's free, runs anywhere, has a great amount of libraries and IDEs.
