Inspired by the current slashdot poll. I am truly curious myself.
For me, the first language I wrote a DECENT program in was ruby :), yeah, envy me, ruby! It wasn't to exciting, it was just a little rails app that searched a book database, but it was cool. After that little escapade I have really gotten into ruby, in fact I'm turining that little search program into a full library suite.
