Though I still have trouble remembering all the parentheses and semicolons, my favorite is still just plain old C, currently gcc. No IDE's. No fancy editors. Just a text editor and the compiler ( OK, so maybe also MAKE).

C just seems to flow as far as logic goes. It has all the features I want in a language. If it's missing: write it.

I also like that it is strongly typed. This seems cumbersome at first, but after you've had a less strongly typed language screw up all your work, you have no idea how much better it really is.
