First post, so I hope I have placed in the correct area.
Way back in the distant past I did a little programming in college with Delphi, Visual Basic and C. I got on ok with the Delphi, Visual Basic (I like the graphical interface) but found C a little harder to grasp.
Could someone recommend a open source language similar to Delphi or Visual Basic so I can get back on the horse so to speak. If there are none then any suggestions would be welcome. I have looked on the net at Ruby, Python. It will be for my own amusement at home.
