Yeah, it is tough choosing a favorite programming language.  I would do C++,
but I just never enjoyed it.  VB was fun and easy.  I was considering Delphi
because of Kylix and I can make apps that run on Windows and Linux then.
Looks like I may chose java though so that I can play with JSP and do java
apps for servers.  I hate doing GUI interfaces anyway.

All my web app development is with PHP.  I am going to start playing with
JSP and Tomcat though.

I won't even consider ASP since I think IIS is a horrible choice for a
webserver.
