Programming languages #1
Why are there so many programming languages if you can achieve the same with every programming languages? Like there aren't programming languages that can do something more than other right?
As long as you are living, you will face problems. But you serve a God who solves problems.

You could use any language for any purpose, but some are easier to use and/or more efficient than others for specific use cases due to how the language was designed and implemented. It's like any other set of tools, physical or digital.

There are a lot of systems, hence a lot of languages being developed. Some have the same purpose, but execute differently, have better readability and might be more efficient and safer than others. It's also like coffee. Everyone has different tastes.

Python has no semicolon at the end of a statement.
They did it just to fuck with grammatical types! Also, please... Even QBASIC had semicolons...

^^ Basically, you should pick the best language suited for your preferences and your project.
For example if you want to perform low-level operations and have more control over your program you should use ASM, C/C++, if you want a simple task being done, use a scripting language like python/perl/bash.
However, my point is that ultimately, all of these languages serve the same purpose: turning human thoughts into something a computer can understand (1's and 0's)

Modern hardware requires modern software, which means modern software requires modern code. As tech changes, different languages are needed. More security, more performance, and an easier to understand language. The first languages were almost impossible for humans to understand. So it kept evolving, until now. And different types of software and hardware require different code. You couldn't make an operating system like Windows in Ruby. You'd need something more complex that can communicate with hardware, like C++.

Not every programming language can achieve the "exact" result, hence the different types of languages.
