When you started (like I did) with a C64 you usually know BASIC and 6510 Assembler. At school we had Turbo Pascal. During my apprenticeship as skilled worker in electronics we used 8085 Assembler and TP again. Doing Perl then was my own Idea. When studying CS I used C++, Java, C, SQL. I should have learned haskell, matlab and x86 Ass as well, but I don't remember much about that. First contact with .net happened when working for two years for the chair of automatition (porting from VBS to VB.net).
Learning new languages is exciting (I'm throgh the ruby chapter of 7 languages in 7 weeks) and you learn about new concepts. They open your mind, even if you don't get fluent in those languages.
