For my Unix stuff, I use C, borne shell, and perl. For Windows, I use AutoIT and VBScript. For stuff that runs on a microcontroller or a digital signal processor, I use either C or assembler depending on what I am trying to do. I couldn't beleive how many programing languages are out there. There was WAY too many to list on the poll. I know of Cobol, Forth, Fortran, Lisp, Logo, Ada to name a few.

Ahhh, now *that* takes me back! I used to make mIRC do some really neat stuff back in the day. Surprisingly capable program, even if didn't scale well...but it wasn't meant to :)

A little experience in Basic, VB Scripts, DOS Batch, smattering of Assembler, HP COBOL (one of first Client-Server-oriented).

Assembler, however, is my favorite.

Visual Basic/VBScript
DOS Batch/Command (.BAT/.CMD)
Perl

This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But, it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

C
AutoHotKey (voted AutoIt because they are very similar and in fact AHK is a fork of AutoItv2)
HTML
Unix shell, batch files

And my favourite: OCaml/Objective-Caml.
I need to say why this language is my favourite : developping is fast, code is portable, programs are robust (static types *automatically* determined at compile time which lets you have complicated types) and fast (~1.2*C_time), functionnal programming (List.iter (Printf.printf "%s\n") my_list;; are really nice things), language is powerful and expressive though cryptic for the beginner.
Problems ? None with the language, some with the libraries which are sometimes lacking (*sometimes*, you usually have everything you need).
I know this isn't about comparing computer languages but I needed to make some advertisement for this one which is not known enough. :)

I started with some Basic and Assembly ages ago, writing my own slot machine. Once we had a 286, I wrote hundreds of Batch-files. Ah, the memories! ;) From there on I learned some Perl and Visual Basic. Around the same time I learned HTML, CSS, JavaScript, VBScript and later ASP. And of all this, I believe that I use my Batch and HTML knowledge most ;)

JavaScript, HTML, CSS, AutoIT, PHP, DOS Batch.

I would think that ActionScript is a language?

As hard as ActionScript 3.0 can be to use, yes, it is a language.

Well, I use CSS, HTML, JavaScript (NOT the same as Java!) etc. a lot for web design. I'm learning both VBscript and Visual Basic. I'm learning assembly for my TI-84+, and as for my other vote, that goes to TI-BASIC, the easiest, coolest language on earth, at least while sitting in math class feeling bored and having nothing better to do than program. or play tetris. on the calc. :thumbup Oh, and batch scripting but that doesn't really count, at least not on the level I use it.

I mainly program in assembly language and (sometimes) use C/C++ as a wrapper. I hate software bloat.

HTML, CSS, PHP, Javascript here. Mostly simple web-based programming for now.

.. well, I used to do work with batch alot in the past for simple application-like scripts when I needed to whip one together. I did try to learn Assembly as well but there are very few somewhat-usable tutorials available >.>
