I think Python has got to be one of the easiest langauges to learn. While
Perl people seem to dislike it for some fair reasons, it is much easier fro a
beginner to write code, and for anyone to maintain code in Python. It is
portable across MANY platforms, even Windoze, and is a snap for writing CGIs
and other good stuff.
It also lets a programmer learn quite a few of the different styles of
programming (imperative, object oriented, and functional) if one so desires.
Python OOP is a little slow however. You'll be able to learn most of what
you need to start from:
