Worst language?
#1
People always ask what's the best language to know or what's your favorite language or go to programming language etc.... but what's your least favorite?



#2
Java. Nothing else needs to be said about it. Java.



#3
PHP is the absolute worst and so very old. Super out-dated.



#4
Not really a proper language but the autohotkey scripting language is the worst thing ever created by another human being.



#5
Ruby. It took the worse part of Perl, readibility. I hate those one-liners that nobody can read.



#6
^ agreed w all of the above, emphasis on java



#7
Sheesh java haters. What languages do you like then? Maybe Im not sophisticated enough to hate java yet.

In my opinion, Java. It lacks speed, is barely usable on open-source systems (and only through years of toil by the community), and is just too wordy to use reasonably.

Honorable mentions:
Malbolge for being absolutely useless, a pain to learn, and intentionally confusing.
C# for being Microsoft's version of Java, albeit slightly faster and more portable.
R for being good for statistics and nothing else.
Python for being overused and slow. 98% of the time, anything you write is Python has already been done in a better way and published by somebody else.
Kotlin for being Google's version of Java and being the language that Android devs are forced to use.
QTScript for being a fundamentally bad idea and not intending to do anything new.
Awk for not really even being a programming language and requiring tons of special characters.

Personally, I ended up gravitating to Ruby and Crystal because while Ruby is slow, Crystal works around that, they're easy to read and understand (for me, at least), and Ruby has a nice community. Also, cartoon foxes.
