In programming there is no better or worse languages they are just tools and most of programming has nothing to do with the language, it is about the process behind the programming. In the commercial industry we refer to people who like to push a language in the derogatory term codermonkeys and generally at a job interview saying xxx language is a better language will see you immediately overlooked. If you make programming a career you will probably code fluently in a at least 3 or 4 languages and probably dabble and have limited understanding in 3 or 4 more.

C is indeed old and it can be hard but it and Java are also the most widely used programming language. In some sections of industries it is in fact the only choice and here I refer to industries like microcontroller industry. The manufacturers for those processors don't make programming tools and so generally the only options is assembler or C.

The current spectrum rating on most widely used languages is (1)Java,(2)C,(3)C++,(4)Python,(5)C# .... daylight to everything else

So most the bulk of us old commercial programmers can write in two of the three (Java,C,C++).

So that is the commercial world but that all said if you are just programming for fun feel free to use whatever language works for you. The language does not change the problem at all, if I ask you to write a bubble sort algorithm the language does not change the problem. Rosettacode.org actually lists the code for a bubble sort in 117 programming languages and none of them are better or worse than any other they all confirm to the same pseudocode.

The ability to Pseudocode is what seperates programmers from codermonkeys and you may care to read about it from wikipedia. Any real programmer can write what they are doing in pseudocode and that pseudocode requires no choice of language showing ultimately just how irrelevant the chocie of language is.

The choice of language generally comes down to availability and ease of use of the compiler and tools and your familiarity with it.
In vino veritas
