    Why does it seem like some things are overly complicated in some programming languages?

    PHP Code:
    10 print "Hello, World!"
    20 end 
    Simple enough, right? That was BASIC... the only programming language I really know so far besides HTML (which some people don't consider to be a programming language). Sadly, BASIC seems to be outdated...

    Well, look at this... It's not as simple.

    PHP Code:
    class consoleapp
    {
    public static 
    void Mainstring[] args )
    {
    System.Console.WriteLine"Hello, world!" );
    }

    That's C# (I think), which I might try to learn someday (not sure yet. I might try visual basic, or maybe both) But it just seems unnecessarily complicated...

    Now... this next one really takes the cake for being too complicated...

    PHP Code:
    org 100h
    mov dx
    msg
    mov ah
    9
    int 21h
    mov ax
    4C00h
    int 21h
    msg db 
    'Hello world$' 
    That's x86 intel-syntax assembly. :eyepop:

    Why is it so excessively complicated? :eek:

    Well... if anyone wants to try programming, I think these express editions are free.

    I would recommend Lunix if you are a beginner but if you are experienced then do DOS..

    Mac is also easy and so is PHP.BB is in the middle since you can do one mistake then it gets screwed up, C# is for programmers that have been programming for about 1-2 years.
