Well, I program in Perl by choice - I like my SciTE text editor with it's 
beautiful Perl syntax highlighting. Here at work I program C/C++ for native 
and embedded stuff but use Java for modern large-scale systems. I'm loving 
Eclipse for refactoring Java and I think on the whole Java is rather elegant. 
I also end up writing and debugging a lot of SQL for projects where stored 
procedures are used extensively - it's Microsoft Transact SQL and it is UGLY!

One Bell System - it works.
