Last Modified: 2012-05-05
Good day,

I am a Visual Basic programmer.
I made a choice to learn a new language.  I made this choice because I find it hard to create software designed for a hardware.

What would be the next language I should learn?
c++ or c# or c?

What IDE should I use?



I am trying to avoid using M$ software.
