I need to know a good language to start with, at first i tried C++ but that is way too hard for me at this point, so i tried C, but am starting to get a bit confused as well. So what i really need, is a language that is easy for a n00b to learn, and that would enable me to easily move onto something like C or whatever is suggested as a next step.
Thanks for any help
Oh yeah, I am only interested in this as something to do as a hobby, not really wanting to spend any money, and need to be able to spend as much time as i like learning it, so IDE's or whatever with trials before i buy are bad.
Also, could you suggest some sites i can get free good tutorials off for the language suggested? Also any IDE's or whatever, just so i can get started.
