What's stopping you learning a new programming language?

Learning a new language is a great way to become a better programmer, but a lot of us make excuses. What's yours? Or are you already a polyglot programmer?

I somewhat agree with you.
 
If you know basic of programming and concepts then it does not matter to you learning a new programming language, after all a learning new syntax is just matter of 15-20 days work.
 
I been through foxpro, c, c++, Delphi, Perl, Python, CGI, VB, C#, VB.Net, Java.
 
Only differnce I saw is in the implmentaiton of Perl and VC++, they are more interacting with Native services of Operating System and you can gain much control over there. But otherwise all are same.
 
Smile | :)
 
thanks
