    Since neither OOP nor .Net are languages, it looks like you'd have to go with Java. It's the only one of the three choices you gave that is a language. BTW, Java is a OOP language and .Net is a programming framework. As for the best direction for you, I'd say it's too early for you to decide. There are many things you need to learn. Java is possibly a good way for you get going. -- Tom
