    I wouldn't classify Java as RAD. VB is not-so-RAD. C# (through VS.NET) is getting there.

    I wouldn't say either that transition from Pascal to VB / C# / Java would be "relatively easy". Pascal is procedural in the first place. Unless of course, you're referring to Object Pascal (now known as Delphi)... which is a different beast.

    Either way.. programming is fun!!!

    And yeah.. don't forget to read a great post from one of the 3 fathers of Delphi, Chuck Jazdzewski": Fatherly Advice To New Programmers ( If you ever wonder who the other 2 are... it's Gary Whizin and to the uninitiated... the father of C#... Anders Hejlsberg )

    No doubt applies to new and old alike!

    Hmm if u want to have a UI framework and interested in using Java and easy to extend via plugins try looking at eclipse, although the learning is steep at the begining but then u appreciate the power of using plugins to extend ur app Azerus (Haha cant spell) is done using that.

    It helps that Eclipse is a great java ide.

    If you are not into low-level programming, try either C# (from Microsoft) or Java (from Sun). Both are basically VERY similar, so knowing 1 helps you to convert to the other easily. There are more free IDEs around for Java, like Eclipse or Netbeans.

    // There are also people who sticks to perl.

    If you're looking for a challenge... Malbolge

    Not sure what kind of conversion you are doing but if you're looking for an extremely easy language to learn, try php.
    Same syntax as C, much more forgiving.
