      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

As a hobbyist in computer programming, geek or what ever, I'm interested in seeing what KBasic brings to Linux as far as a high level language is concerned.


Began Ramble

I cut my teeth writing in Microware Basic09 for OS9, then in M$, GWBasic and QBasic. QBasic is where I learned a little machine language to make system calls to add a little power to basic applications. Visual Basic Text Window system made it possible to compile basic text files to executable stand alone applications and introduce module programming in M$ OS. VB6 for Windows has become so powerful where applications written in C and C++ now can be done in Visual Basic for Windows professional edition. Maybe the reason why I didn’t pursue C and C++ in earnest, but still working and learning C and C++, mostly C++.

End Ramble


I think KBasic will be good for Linux.

Just out of curiosity, if someone develops commercial applications with KBASIC, how is the QT license handled? Just in case anyone actually knows...
