    The most used and probably most powerful web programming language is PHP.
    Easy to learn and really a nice language.

    After all most sites on the internet use PHP, you'll hardly find more help for a language than for PHP.
    I'd guess next on the list is PERL.

    I don't have numbers but how many percent are filled by python, ruby, asp and co ? Most likely a pretty small number.

    I usually don't tell people to learn that what most people do, but in web-programming PHP is definitely no bad choice.
    For standalone applications I'd not use python, php or any of the interpreter languages.

    C/C++ are the most professional way, maybe together with a frame work like wxWidgets.
    Easier to get into will be Delphi, C#, BCPP-builder or VisualBasic

    C/C++ is more for an expert, it will take a lot of time to learn it but after all those two langauges are the ones without any limits. (Linux, Windows are mostly written in C/C++ as example)



    P.S.
    Such topics are born for religious wars, I better step away now;)

    I am not idiot, ruby is still part of rails isnt it? Other then that its hard to get objective opinions since so many people value their opinion on experience only.

    I know what is my experience, php in terms of learning curve is a pain comparing to ruby and its framework, cakephp sucks as well but hence that i would still hold with both ruby and php due to popularity and demand
