In hopes of preventing a religious war, but at the risk of extending
this thread more than it probably should be on this list, let me point
out that all existing programming languages are equivalent as far as
what can be done and what can't be done.  From a theoretical point of
view they're all equivalent to a Turing machine) and from a practical
point of view, eventually everything is converted to machine language.
Now this doesn't mean that some things are easier in some languages
than others :-)
