General Development "You often hear about how important it is to write 'readable code'. Developers have pretty strong opinions about what makes code more readable. The more senior the developer, the stronger the opinion. But, have you ever stopped to think about what really makes code readable?"

Then go for Scheme, which is a stripped down version of the original Lisp. Lisp as evolved into Common Lisp (Lisp with OOP features) yet there is not just a single implementation that is fully 'CL' compilant. Try those two :

http://ufasoft.com/lisp/ (Windows' logo, exe file) but you'll need several Visual Express 2010's dependencies since the Lisp IDE is Visual Studio based. About 4OO MB.

http://www.sbcl.org/ another pretty compliant and powerful, yet no IDE, you should use Slime + Emacs for the gurus. Or an Eclipse based plugin. Or WinSBCL from here http://code.google.com/p/winsbcl/ or LispIDE from there http://www.daansystems.com/lispide/

BTW, comparison between CL and Scheme : http://symbo1ics.com/blog/?p=729
