I know some C++ and I want to develop it but also start learning a new one. I'm searching for a language matching me. 
• I want (in future) to programm softwares but not games. What type of softwares? The ones that generally work with computer. Not a software that adds numbers but for example TeamViewer. It's a stupid example but I think you know what I mean. 
• I can try to manage a difficult language. 

I consider Ruby and JS. Which one can you recommend to me? Maybe should I take into my consideration not only these two?

Ruby is typically used as a server-side web development language. JavaScript is typically used as a client-side in-browser language; and occasionally as a server-side web development language in the form of Node.JS.

If you want to build something like TeamViewer I don't think you're going to beat C or C++ given that such programs typically require installing a driver to capture the host system's framebuffer.

Java would be a more profitable choice. Everything uses java now-a-days and there is always a need for Java programmers.

For desktop applications I would recommend making the jump to Visual Studio. Primarily C#. It's a very strong programming language and there is TONS of documentation for it.
