The fact that he "refuses to get into the debate" does not mean he has no 
clear language preferences.  Common sense suggests that he uses C++ for at 
least 51% of his programming. 

BTW, good luck with your quest to find your favorite language. It would be 
nice though if you didn't cross-post discussions started on one list to 
another, no matter how all-important your replies may seem to you.
