You should give Python and Ruby a spin. Python's syntax may be 
off-putting (I thought the same initially) but when you actually try to 
write something with it, it really doesn't get in the way. And even 
though I much prefer Ruby (both syntax and features), Python's single 
coding style is an advantage.

Please. Have you looked at Javascript's "OO model" ? Javascript is 
suitable to script applications, not to write ones from scratch.
