Basic is a great language.
Those folk who look in here who use Basic for their applications, already know what a superb language it is.
The folk who haven't tried it, don't know what they're missing.
The language you choose is a life changing thing. It is the means by which you make a living maybe, or just express yourself by programming for fun.
Basic is great for hobby programmers - but can be equally useful for technical and commercial applications.
I've used Fortran, Algol, Delphi, and various dialects of Basic.
I even got paid once for an educational program I did in Visual Basic 5 - but that's unusual.
For more years than I care to think about, I made my living from Fortran. A good language, but compared to Basic, completely useless as far as user interface and graphics goes.
I'm convinced in my later years, that Basic is the winner - and I might just try to prove it ..
