That SO survey got me wondering what programming language the folks here would be personally interested in learning (and I mean, becoming proficient in) if you had the time & inclination?

This is actually a difficult question for me, because any time I have to work with something else (most notably Python at the moment) I end up missing all the snazzy features of C#.

That said, personally I'd like to explore the functional programming / parallel computing space some more, so F#, Rust and Erlang come mind.

Go falls under the category of a curiosity, I'm not sure what practical use I have for it, and I suppose there's always more bad practices to learn and hair pulling experiences to have with regards to Javascript.

Your turn!
