    and how would i learn any of them
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    best one is debatable, it depends on what you need to program for

    python is rather easy, as well as HTML imo

    python I guess, most-readable syntax

    ? Not sure what you mean. The most recent?

    classes; practice; websites; coding programs.

    I kinda hope I get away from Java soon, and I think next semester I'm going to learn basic Unix and C++, and MAYBE continue with Java. I heard rumors that the teacher is thinking of replacing Java with Python.

    by futuristic i mean what language is probably going to take over the web in the future, like html5 was aimed to

    I'm pretty sure C++ is the most wide-spread language used, but that's likely because once you learn C++, all the other languages based off it become easier. However, I don't think C++ and it's branches can be used to make websites, at least, not as easily as languages that were built for this function in mind.

    PHP is becoming more popular, but Java, HTML, XHTML, and ASP are also very popular web programming languages.

    I don't think one language will dominate, it's more a matter of personal choice by the programmer. Sometimes a person would want to built a Java applet, and thus has to use Java etc.

    There are literally thousands of programming languages, even one my professors built a language himself.

    I don't think you can magically force the internet to accept just one.

    C++ is god tier but exceptionally difficult. HTML isn't programming. Java is not something you want to start using until you're proficient at it. This isn't because it's hard, it's easy cheese, but it's what *everyone* learns and you'll be just another twat Java programmer who can't fix a memory leak.

    HTML is good enough for learning how to think like a programmer though. Even if all you learn how to do is change the background color or make text bold... >_> Making a flash game is probably the highest peak of using HTML, and even that isn't much given that you can find programs to create shortcuts for you.

    I think Java is harder than C++. Maybe because I'm so used to the syntax and everything with C and C++.

    Yeah, I learnt some basic syntax to program elementary stuff such as "Write a program to reverse a number" etc etc when I was in tenth. I've forgotten almost everything now, but I do know that the syntax was complicated.

    My teacher actually told us that by rights we should have learned C++ before Java.
