For what it's worth, with me that's at least 3.

Or Scala?  :-P  (Digressing a bit more in this vein, I've been feeling the
pull of more functional languages lately, in particular Scala, which if you
don't know is a functional OO hybrid language that targets the JVM.  I
actually wish something similar happened in the Object Pascal space.  C#
inspired F#.   Java inspired Scala.  Delphi/FPC inspired/inspires ...?
Further aside, for those interested in more functional programming and
Scala, watch this video: https://goo.gl/chdMlv   In a different vein,
there's also the Rust language which is another language seems well worth
learning and brings new ideas to the table well above and beyond syntactic
sugar.... But enough of that, hope that's not been too off topic!)
