How Does C# Compare To The Rest?

Hi,

I'm trying to learn how to create desktop software applications. Yes, a total programming newbie

I'm trying to figure out how to design application windows, application menus, how to build window menus and so on. I'm trying to decide upon a programming language to learn.

I'm looking for a programming language that is not too difficult to learn, but that I will not be limited in.

In other words, once I learn the language, I want to be able to do everything I think up with it. Sure I might need to learn complimentary languages, like MySQL, XML, etc...

But I want to eventually (notice I said 'eventually') create complex desktop apps as quickly and easily as possible without limits

Is C# that language? Or might another language better fit what I'm looking for?

Agreed, I basically learned all I know about application development from working with C#, .NET, VS2003/2005. While I regret not having a broad understand of "programming", I will admit that I have been easily able to learn all that is required of me, and documentation is easy to find for just about anything you could ever want to do.
