I love how the OP says, explicitly, that he doesn't want to learn C/C++ and the first 3 posts are "Hey, here's how you learn C++". Seriously. LOL. I may be a C++ bastard myself, but at least I don't actively try to oppress people with it (forced suicide, anyone?).
Then again, I've seen the same thing done with other languages. Sheesh, what ever happened to "open-mindedness"?
(Oh, and Java still sucks, btw)
