programming languages....

Any specific ones that you guys recommend for someone who's just now picking up on computers? Alot of people I've asked recommend JAVA. Everyone else has either recommended C++ or python, yet strangely no one has said MATLAB ;) .

No recommendations here.

And honestly, I'd take the recommendations you have received with a fine grain of salt. How can someone truly give a good recommendation if they haven't shopped around for languages, so to speak? And even if you have, does programming a "Hello, world!" program or reading through a SAM's Teach Yourself in 24 hours book give you enough insight to make a truly informed decission? No.
