Visual Basic for apps
Free Basic for games
Power Basic for apps or games

Powerbasic has to be the best on here. It has fast compile times with the Borland technology from TurboBASIC, and produces efficient code.

whats this Freebasic for games ?

come now freebasic has incredible power it falls inline with C in ability.

so it should be more along the lines of
Freebasic For Apps , Games , misc

also if you check out the latest benchmarks Freebasic is comparable able with GCC. atleast on the bench marks i have seen.

and once the move to the gcc backend is complete well then it will be the fastest basic dialect out

well, i have FREEbasic but i can't start how do I?
the screen is always like this:
C:/Program Files/FREEBASIC/>_

What should i type? and BTW, freebasic runs on something like QB so i'm afraidi would experience the same technical difficulties.

And is there any languages better but still easy than any BASIC?

ths for all the help

Here, try this. It's an integrated development enviroment for FB.

FB is similar to QB, but that's where it ends... Similar. ;)

The community has asked for things that are more suited for game development rather than application development, and by application development I mean apps that use the UNIX philosiphy strictly.

Still, PowerBASIC is the most powerful BASIC if you've ever used it. Faster compile times, smaller apps, better code.

I've used Borland products, Turbo BASIC and Turbo Pascal back in the day. I know their caliber.

Just a side note: PowerBASIC is the descendant of Turbo BASIC - according to Wikipedia, Bob Zale wrote it, then sold it to Borland, then bought it back when Borland no longer wanted to sell it.

In the test of math operations that I did, QB3 was 4 times faster than QB4, but an old version of PB was slightly faster than that. However, FB blew everything out of the water. No reason not to use FB.
