    I'd think the question by now should be C++, Java or C#? But if you're looking for easy there's always javascript, and it's pretty hard to do any damage with it.

    "Easy" is very subjective. Are you asking which one is easier to learn? To use? To decompile? To contribute to open source projects?

    They both have their advantages and disadvantages.

    If you're looking for a language that's easy to learn, then look at languages like LOGO, which is taught to children. Easy to get started with, try VBA, you can run it right inside of excel. Easy to make an "application" with, try PHP.

    Define Easy.

    Since you asked specifically about C and C++, I'll answer that question. C++ is as easy to learn as C but there's more to learn so it might take a while longer to get really proficient.

    C++ will make the design of solutions MUCH easier.
    Functionality rules and clarity matters; if you can work a little elegance in there, you're stylin'.

    C is the basic language,where as C++ is an advanced to C.All people like the extended version of the language,because it provide more facilities which are not in previous version.
    C is easy,but lines for coding take more than C++.

    For beginner, C language is the best step entry to programming world. In fact, most of my friends start learning from C, then other languages.

    They both have their merits, I would not say either were easy to learn more that when you get the hang of C++ you tend to look down on C and when you get the hang of C and start on C++ you realize that C has many short comings, I found the exceptions and templates to be a boon in C++ while in C I ended up having a deep loathing for the printf function, and the file handling in C leaves a lot to be desired. Still if you learn C, learning C++ is easier to get the hang of.

    I'm closing this thread because it seems to be use for spammers and idiots. OP, if you're still here, DaWei is the authority on the C languages, listen to him. C++ is my recommendation as well if you must choose between those two languages.
