At least 100 years ago, some h4x0r named Alan Turing used his heavily-modded cassette recorder to prove that all possible ways of hacking halfway-worthwhile crap on a computer are actually the same. Since then, it has of course been critical for nerds to determine which one is teh best. Msdn also hosts many other programs used for hacking into people's private lives/LJs.
In all, programming language is the reason why some basement dweller in Connecticut can sneak onto your computer and steal the picure of you masturbating in your raccoon outfit and post it on 4chan therby destroying your life.
Programming language is part of a series on Programming.
