Hello, To toot the Java horn a bit... Java is a nice language for learning. It's language is relatively simple and Java has removed some of the buggy aspects of previous languages. C# brings some of those potentially confusing aspects back in. And to reiterate what Cindy said a bit, once you know Java, to learn C# (or some other similar language) is a lot less work (a breeze even). Plus, with Java you have wonderful communities to support your studies - like JavaRanch! Good Luck, -Dirk Schreckmann
