Very important point to make a difference between reading and writing skills. E.g. if you want to do Computer Linguistics you may get away coding in C, Java or whatever, but you will need reading knowledge of Lisp and Prolog. If you do scientificcomputing its Fortran, if you are going to become a Windows Guru probably Visual Basic, even if you will not do any programming in this languages.
