  3. An equally vague question would be "Tomatos or Tomato Sauce". It depends on the use.

  4. Okay, just choice bestest for you language
  5. Their 2 totally seperate things?
  6. I can add PHP:p
  7. Java go forward....
  8. Ah you want to see which is our favourite? Then also add the popular ones (C#, C++) etc.

  10. OK
  11. OMG, It now not also JS vs Java...
  12. Still, if you know multiple of the ones from that list, you can't just say one is better than the other without any context. I'm hardly going to be designing a fully functional game in PHP but if I need a small, quick and easy to deploy project PHP would be the best option.

  14. Choice it!
  15. All of them.
    Although PHP is a flaming disaster.

    If you want to be able to do just about anything without learning everything, java, C++ and a web language like PHP is a good set of choices. Java is also a good place to start for a beginner, as it does not force you to deal with highly technical stuff.
  16. This thread is so dumb..

  17. They're both good at different things. Java scales much better than Javascript (this is coming from someone who worked with angular/typscript at a large scale for my day job) and this is something you can't really refute. It's a lot faster to pump out some Javascript code though. Just as a small comparison. There are many differences between the two languages, and they're really only similar in their name.
  18. Apples or bananas?
