I strongly dislike COBOL :)
There's much to hate in PHP but I think the unusual deep copy
behaviour (i.e. assignments are deep copies) coupled with a certain
vagueness in the documentation about how references really work (I
think that they're actually aliases - but that's cargo culted) is the
only thing I really bang my head against.
Java's good fun for a C-like language, C# looks nice but I don't know
from most other mainstream languages in all sorts of subtle and
In other language news Objective C is sooooo much nicer than C++. To
the extent that ObjC is actually fun to use.
