Windows only BASIC.

I hear the same rubbish from the FreeBASIC folks when they say it runs on 64 bit Linux. Just don't forget to install the 32 bit libraries and 32 bit runtime support.  ::)

the syntax looks like a cross between Pascal and Basic but that's no problem, could be useful for making quick gui-programs.
@John
I have installed FreeBasic x64 on Ubuntu x64 without having to install any 32-bit libs and compiled and run programs without any problems.

Since a few versions this isn't necessary anymore. I works now really nice although not all (third party) libraries/headers are ported to 64 bit, yet. But SDL2 is, so my framework works well.

I'm running Mint on a few boxes here, and I've never had any problems running 32bit binaries on my 64bit systems OOTB, not since the days of Slackware 12, and I suspect that's only because Slackware has the attitude of "You want it? You bloody set it up then".

I Love Slack :)

I don't think anyone has, but it wasn't John's point. What John wanted to say is that FreeBasic doesn't have a proper 64-bit version and this makes ScriptBasic superior. ;)

EDIT But here is a question. Can a version that requires Wine to run be called a Linux version? I'm not being sarcastic. I'm just wondering.

No, if it requires WINE then you have to install a load of extra libraries and gubbins to your linux system in order to launch it... Oh, wait. That sounds oddly familiar... :)

It looks cool and very easy to understand. I'll give it a try.

So here is another question - is Logic Basic a BASIC? Or is it another example of what is this topic about?  ;)

Font Parent.Name = "Arial"
Font Parent.Color = Blue
Font Parent.Size = 20
...
Write "Logic Basic"

No then, no else if, no for/next loop. You need to declare variables. Well...

Can a Java VM (like Android) be called a Linux program?

What!? :) I don't understand the question. :) Are you trying to say that Android is a Windows program? Or a BSD program? :)

Well, when I install a Linux version of Java on my Linux system, I install a Linux program.

Android is a VM that runs on top of Linux. Sort of like how SysWOW64 runs on top of Windows 64 bit.
