Which computer language?

Hi, I am pretty good at web langauges (html, css, javascript etc) and I would like to move on to learn a software programming langauge, which one should I learn? I was thinking about c#. I am really stuck as I don't want to buy 10 books to find that I only like one langauge if you know what I mean. Can you program? If yes, which langauge(s) do you use? If you know more than one, which order did you learn them in?

You must have just posted this... I haven't programmed much of anything lately. When I started there were languages that I doubt anyone has heard of nowadays like Cobal and Fortran... Lisp and well some weird stuff. I started with batch files and then Basic and then Pascal and C then C++. I also did some assembly... More

I like c, but it's kind of old and rather low level. You might want to try ruby. It's fun and easy to learn. http://tryruby.hobix.com/ This sight is great, you can learn the basics in like ten minutes without downloading anything.

Go for C#, it is a great modern language and there is lots of work going in to make it better. Get a copy of C# Express from Microsoft ... it is a good development environment and free! Java is also worth learning, but I haven't found a free development environment which beats C# Express. C# allows you to do asp.net as... More

I suggest Ruby. It is still on the up, while C# has probably peaked already... so it's a bit late to get into the market.
