Do you know any other BASIC languages for WIndows except for LibertyBasic and VisualBasic?

Strictly a windows compiler, but has lots of good features.

Freebasic is without a doubt the best and most complete basic language out there today. End of discussion
I have left this dump.

Getting FreeBasic

I got both FB IDE and FreeBasic from the FB IDE download site:

http://www.fbide.freebasic.net/index.php?menuID=56

You get both the most current version of FreeBasic and a nifty Integrated Development Environment (IDE) called FBIde.

Honestly, I had trouble getting it to work until version 0.4.4, when it (the IDE) worked fine. The current version is 0.4.6.

Which is the main reason I don't use FreeBASIC for my *bigger* projects. Heck, my SCREEN 0 windowing routine (hand coded) uses PCOPY to "remove" windows.........

Is it possible that the above is a spambot? I don't want to offend him if it's not, but that resembles other posts the spambots used to make.
