I started with HyperCard, migrated to MetaCard, then Revolution, which
became LiveCode.  I have dabbled in AppleScript, DOS batch scripts, VMS
scripts, but always return to the language I started with, in its modern
form (LiveCode).

I don't WANT to ever have to learn C or C++!  I don't want a GUI only
language because it would be as limited as painting in MS-Word.  Nor would
I want to start with something so easy that I have a false sense of what
programming is, then have to learn something completely different and more
difficult.  Start with basic LC, and gradually build on those skills in ONE
great language - LiveCode.  /2 cents
