I use php for websites because I'm familiar with it, perl for irssi
scripts because that's the language to write them in, vhdl at work
because I have to / because it's what I need to use, a lisp-alike
because it's the glue / scripting language with the proprietry software
we use.

I also use C predominantly for most things I write* because that's
essentially what I'm most familar with and is most well supported in

*apart from when it's simple enough to use shell scripting of some sort
or other!
