Thanks for FreeBASIC!

Postby skystrick » Oct 10, 2017 13:59

I want to thank all the dudes who created FreeBASIC. I don't know your names, but I use your program every day and I love it!

Microsoft QBASIC is the only programming language I know. Having FreeBASIC means I can run a modern OS in 2017 but still write code in QBASIC syntax.

Thank you for making a Linux version!!

FreeBASIC is the only real way to code QBASIC syntax on Linux. Because of that I can run QBASIC programs on my serial dumb terminals!

This is all FreeBASIC:

Thanks for this!!

What is that bowl?
Pooch or sleekit feline?

You are not frightened of an accidental or deliberate spray among all those wires?

I echo your thanks.
