Java would advance my career because I would remain competitive as a
Java programmer, should I need to change employers at some point...
C++, Actionscript and DirectX would help me with the company I'm
already at.

However, I like your advice that being productive is even more
important than knowing any particular language skill. It's very much
the kind of bigger picture rationale that I was looking for!

Truth is that getting a programming job at this point may be at odds
with career advancement. I really should be looking at moving into
management... and that is where personalized tools would help, as
opposed to the collaborative tools I use now.
