I do know programming languages other than Mathematica. Quite
probably the list of programming languages I've used is and have
experience with is far shorter than your list. But, my preferred
tool for solving the type of problems I encounter is Mathematica
because I find I can more quickly and efficiently solve problems
with the tools available in Mathematica than I can with other
languages such as FORTRAN, C, C++, Pascal and others.
