If your dealing with Windows API, wouldn't it be a lot easier to use one of the "Visual Studio" suites ?

msgbox("Can't we all just get along?")

Unfortunately not everyone uses Visual Studio (especially if they want to make game/software that is actually portable). Also in most cases people seem to want to reinvent the wheel, like here: http://thedailywtf.com/Articles/A-First-Date.aspx.

 

Anyway from C-Like languages I particularly like Java and C#. First because of its clean, object-oriented syntax (though getters/setters gets to me and I don't use them in my own classes) and latter maybe because it was designed by guy who worked on Delphi (though I felt in love with C# thanks to Unity and learned about that same guy who worked on Delphi worked on C# also just recently). I kinda like Ruby too, but since it is only used in RPG Maker series and I rarely use RPG Maker, I don't have any occasions to practice it.
