Vault OS Now On SourceForge

My project for Vault OS was approved after a couple of rounds of feedback by the admins at SourceForge. They needed clarification on whether or not this was a gag submission. :)

After some further explanation, Vault OS is now an official SourceForge project. A web site off that page will be forthcoming soon. There is no build up yet, there will be within a few weeks.

Awesomeness times ten. beyond awesome. The best part is keeping it cheap enough anyone can build it.

I have been thinking about taking up programming as a hobby and making a food calculator that tracks how much food x number of people need to survive y number of years, how long their current food supply will last, and a few other things like that. It should have a clean GUI and an internal database of foods (that lists nutritional content, price, etc) that people can easily add to.

The problem is, I'm a chemist by trade and have no programming experience whatsoever. My math skills are solid though. Which programming language(s) would you recommend I learn to create such a program? I've been looking at Ruby and that seems pretty simple to learn, but I'm not certain it's the best option for this.

I don't care if it's one of the more complicated languages, I'm just curious about what you'd consider best for the job.
