|Wow, am I that disconnected from other developers? My ranking, from most complaining to least, with the languages I have experience in, would be:
HTML/CSS (I know it's not a language)
C# / C++
As to why:
Visual Basic - because most code people write is awful, though I will, I'm impressed with a lot of the VB code here on CP.
HTML/CSS - because it's inconsistent, obtuse, and hardly ever does what you expect.
Ruby - MethodMissing. Need I say more? (See Python)
Python - Duck typing, some things are cool, but
self gets quite tedious, debugging script languages is a PITA, and I want C#.
C - I want C#
SQL - Can be complicated and weird, but usually just works.
C# / C++ - The Happy Zone
Assembly - Yes, assembly I have the least complaints with because it is the ultimate simple, you get what you code, language. Though, perhaps I speak naively of the days of 6502, Z80, and 8086/8088 programming.
