There are quite a few Spanish users at the forums, so you will be in good company and no-one will mind if your English is not good  :)

I think forum members from all nationalities will be interested in seeing your programs.

Problem is in who use what ..but in how many people even use any of basic
I can say that amount of real users is very very small.

This is probably another thread; another popular thread...the "Is BASIC dead or dying?" thread that we occasionally discussed on and off at BP.org

I don't think it is dead yet if we add up all BASIC users together; although the number of users of each dialect considered on their own (and collectively) may be small compared to languages like C or Java.

Being an optimist and a believer that common sense will eventually prevail, I think it is only a matter of time before users realise that BASIC or other languages without lots of {} ; // makes sense in some circumstances.

Back on topic...  ;)

I don't want to sound like I am bragging but I am at the moment using RCBasic for a few reasons. I obviously have to test it to find and fix bugs but I also am using it to make a 2d action platform game right now.

I hope SpecBas is fully backwards in the future.

SpecBAS is pretty much compatible with Sinclair BASIC with some minor exceptions.

It'll never be fully backwards compatible - larger screen means that certain portions such as embedded colour/AT/TAB commands using CHR$ in PRINT will never work (a byte isn't large enough to store x or y coords), there's no attribute map due to there being more colours so ATTR won't work either. PEEK and POKE have to be different as you can't just go prodding random memory on a PC... Then the streams are handled differently - much more powerful - and there's no BORDER as we're not running on a CRT anymore...

But what is there is 100% compatible. And better in many respects.

Hey, did you ever think of separating a VB.NET option from VB?

To me, the driving force behind .NET is simply this:

"Computer hardware is getting faster and faster. How can we drag things back to the 80s in terms of speed?"

To me, Windows is like an onion. Layer upon layer with a the goal of a different smell.

I responded to the survey as a VB user.  VB6 that is. I use it because I have a lot of legacy graphical stuff written with it that just isnt worth migrating.  I hardly ever use Basic these days having gone over to javascript and THREE.js for 3D animated graphics.  I would have preferred to stay with VB6 if it would have evolved in a nice way.  I looked at VB.NET some years ago but the learning curve looked too steep back then.

At present, I'm using AMOS Pro and Blitz BASIC on the Amiga for research purposes :)

Hehe, those were the languages I grew up with, made many games with 'em.
