I'll assume you asking what is different between Windows and Linux versions of FreeBASIC.
The biggest difference is that FBWin has a rich API / GUI to work with that the Linux version doesn't. I think the one source concept for all platforms has merit. (and a big time saver)
This is only one programmers opinion for the type of programs I write and may not be the best solution for all.
I'm interested to see if the CrossOver Games edition would have any benefits to the gamers on this forum that would like to expand their reach.
