    Woah Nelly, get a decent grasp on Javascript first

    After that I'd recommend you move onto Python before taking the step up to Java, then on to C++. It's one heck of a step down in terms of hand-holding to go from Javascript to C++, I think you'd find the change quite a shock if you step over all the possible intermediate stages.

    Python is an interpreted language, not compiled. If you run a UNIX-based OS, chances are it's already installed; if not, you can get it from http://www.python.org/.

    Yes, it is a fairly big step from JavaScript to C++. In fact, I recommend you learn Java first, the C, then C++. But do as the master says, learn Python first .

    Actually I have decided that I hate python... The followin reasons are why -

    1) Python is not good for creating interfaces as far as I know
    2) And more...

    I'm going to start off at Java...

    edit//- Can't find a Java (windows) compiler... I would appreciate it if someone can help with this

    Python is equally as good as any other language.

    edit//- Can't find a Java (windows) compiler... I would appreciate it if someone can help with this
    Err...
    http://java.sun.com
    That's the only place to get a compiler.

    Aren't you a bit optimistic for saying that you're OK?
