I am looking for a programming language to focus on, that meets my needs. I currently know some basics about C++ and C#, but need some advice on which to use. I'm willing to learn new programming languages (Java, Python, etc). I need a language that is well documented, powerful, and can be compiled to run on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows 2000/XP/Vista with little or no recoding. I would also like to use a language that currently has a powerfull / well documented GUI (like GTK).

Your answer my friend is the wonderful world of: Java

- It's the best cross platform language to be found since it doesn't even need recompiling if you want to run it on a different platform. Java runs in a Virtual Machine environment wich abstracts the hardware from the software in a way. Lot's of advantages

-For any documentation: http://java.sun.com/.../api/index.html (or javadocs.org i find nice aswell)

if you need a book, I could recommend "Thinking in Java" can't remember the author, but nothing a good ol' google search can't help
