Nice writeup.
It follows what Ive decided also about the various languages.

I might one day decide I need to learn one. Maybe Python. But for now I 
still use shell script or if that wont cut it then I revert to BASIC. :)
I use BASIC for my SysAdmin scripts on my internet server, and for web 
CGI's, and for any kind of personal program. I use it on my Debian Linux 
server and my Windows XP desktops.

Specifically, as if anyone cared, I use YaBasic (yet another basic) 
because its in the debian catalog so it gets watched/updated automatically 
with the rest of the server. Its compliant to the ANSI-Basic standards. 
And it comes in a Windows flavor. And I can compile it if I need to 
distribute or market some little routine. Altho lately I have been 
considering QB64 for the latest Quick Basic 64bit release.

Like I said, I have all the books for the others. I can often 
troubleshoot source code but I dont know any of them well enough to 
write something from scratch. If I run into anything I cant do then I 
might be motivated to really learn something else.

How strange. A programmers definition of having fun with a program
project seems just like my definition of stress and frustration.
