    I am new to the IT field. I have lots of ideas in my mind and want to do something in this field but lacking of knowledge. Especially I want to make an operating system using artificial Intelligence and also want to be an good hacker so please do tell me how many languages I should know so that I can make my dream come true. Please suggest me all the languages required in Internet hacking and making operating systems.

    If you want to hack, time to move on my friend. This forum neither condones, nor encourages hacking. You wont find that information here.

    As far as writing operating systems is concerned, its a mammoth task, and one that could take years of serious effort (and no small amount of talent) to achieve. However I believe they are mostly written in C++ these days. Once you have some skill, you can always look at contributing to a linux distro in order to get some feel for how its done.

    Maybe building your own operating system using artificial intelligence might be setting your sights a bit high for someone setting out in the game.

    Maybe think of doing something in C++ that plays noughts and crosses then go from there...

    Nothing wrong with hacking, messing with kit is what its all about.

    A hacker is :-

    * A person who enjoys learning details of a programming language or system
    * A person who enjoys actually doing the programming rather than just theorizing about it
    * A person capable of appreciating someone else's hacking
    * A person who picks up programming quickly
    * A person who is an expert at a particular programming language or system, as in "Unix hacker"

    Learn assembler, C, C++, then maybe some functional languages as well.

    Languages used for operating systems are generally referred to as 'system level languages', these are assembler, C, C++ generally.

    The internet is made up of many diverse technologies it would really depend on what you are interested in, common languages involved in web development include :-

    perl, php, python, JavaScript, ActionScript, Java, C#, SQL, XSLT, coldfusion, ASP.Net, JSP.

    Web markup is largely performed in HTML, CSS.

    Various integration tech exists like ISAPI, CGI, ActiveX, Apache modules, etc.

    I would advise you enroll on a Computer Science course at a university.

    Ruby/Ruby on Rails is also a big player in web development.

    Yeah some people are using other stuff like Ruby, Scala, Groovy, Object Cobol, you name it, meant to include Ruby, I wouldn't say it's huge but it is out there.

    Well after a bit of searching I have seen the OP on various forums from wireless networking, here, horse breeding and lots of others. Try googling his handle and his sig together.

    Spam alarms are staring to ring.
