Hi, I haven't logged into this tilde in a while. I've wanted to learn how to program for a while, but life keeps getting in the way. I want to finally accomplish something. What programming language would you recommend that I learn? I'd like to create apps that work on both Windows and Linux (because I split my time between both). I've bought a bunch of programming ebooks from the Humble Bundle over the years, but am not sure where to start. One caveat: I see recommendations for Python everywhere, but I would like to try something different. Thanks

>>OP I'd recommend C++; classic language with compliers on all platforms. While it's true that python has less boilerplate code to write, is dynamically typed, and handles pointers under the hood; most freely-available IDEs will auto-complete most of the boilerpate, and learning materials have vastly improved since my college days.
