I'm currently investigating a sweet little language call Boo. I've been totally blown away by it's abilities. It's so cool that I just can't belive that I didn't know that such a thing exist. It totally blows away C# in terms of ease-of-use.
There are some cavats currently, mainly due to the fact that the language is still in beta, but already it has some great potential.
The double damn is that I just spent three or four hours coding, and lost it all just as I was about to finish because of #Develop.
