It all depends on what type of programming you are looking to do.
If it's system related, C++ is probably your best bet. If your looking to
do application programming, I would look at Python or Java.
Python is used extensively in the Linux realm, but if you re looking to gain
knowledge in a programming language that not only runs on Linux, but all
platforms, including IBM mainframes, Java is the hands down winner there.
You can't go wrong with that choice. Many companies that do OO application
programming are standardizing on Java. It's also the most compatible language
That's one person's take anyway.
