    Object oriented? Like HTML, C+, Visual Basic, Perl, PHP, etc?

    Python!!
    well it's not exactly windows-based but rather it's cross-platform like Java and is terribly easy to learn... it's syntax is very reader-friendly and has a very good object-oriented implementation (everything is an object)

    goto www.python.org

    other possibilites: Java, C++


    Sidenote: if Skunk sees this he'll be able to give you a better recommendation

    Also depends what your making

    If its win32 they all have their benifits, but you really need to explain what your interested in. ie if you want quick programs, like c++ or if you want cross-platform.

    Will it connect to the internet or what?

    HTML, PERL and PHP are scripting languages. HTML isnt even really a language.

    Object-Oriented Languages include Java, C++, and Visual Basic. I think the easiest to learn of these is VB.

    You may want to look into Microsofts' new language C#. Completely OOP and Windows based.

    Yeah it was a bad morning this morning and wasn't thinking clearly. Thanks moospot for helpin me out there.

    Visual Basic is really easy to learn. I was working with it back in High School and at the time wasn't really wanting to learn it that bad. Now I kinda wish I did.

    Java, Python. Depends on the applications but you could also use PHP. I use php to build rather large intranet apps so it is very applicable.

    Ummm...I didn't think VB was oop (not sure) and I know HTML isn't

    C# is also oop. and has a lot of potential. If it is faster than Java then I see an interesting fight in the future.

    VB.NET ( VB7 ) is 100% OOP. They re-wrote VB to be so, at the expense of backward compatibility.

    From what I've read about C#, many so called experts predict it will supercede JAVA. It's getting high marks for ease of use/learning like JAVA, and overall the language is reputed to be very well designed. In any event, the "battle" between JAVA and C# will be interesting. I'm inclined to agree with the experts. The benefit for JAVA programmers is it's nearly a clone syntactically, so picking up C# should be relatively easy.

    PHP is very OOP friendly. One problem is that it's easy to fall out of the OOP paradigm when developing in PHP since nothing is enforcing OOP. Unlike Java/Python where everything is an object, sometimes in PHP the desire to simply get something working in a more traditional procedural way is just too tempting. OOP does require a lot of design time and thought, but you do have a better and scalable application once completed.

    OO based languages for windows would be
    VB, C++, and Java.
    C++ is pretty hard to learn unless you have a programming background already, but I like its approach to OO the best.

    urm

    Ive been using a lot of visual basic, to make win32 projects. I would have done this in java, but found it extremely difficult to make a project when i didn't know what i was doing as i had only learnt consoles(dos). It seemed very dificult to get used to as i found 0 help on the net, besides Sun which wasn't made in english or self explained. Then I started learning vb, I liked it a lot, also even guessing how to make programs lol, and pulling the help manual out when needed, vb is very easy to learn. Although i'm yet to see vb7

    ps, I would check out j2ee and there are hundreds of sites dedicated to visual basic btw.
