GUI Question

Post by kalc » Sat Aug 20, 2005 4:46 am

Hi all.
In QB Express #13, one person in the GUI article said that he makes GUI's because he is sick of Windows. Is this saying that he wants a replacement for Windows? I do not understand how he could seriously consider a FB or QB GUI as a replacement for this OS. My main question is: Is it possible to make a GUI that is worthy of replacing Windows?

I know why you're here. I know what you've been doing... why you hardly sleep, why you live alone, and why night after night, you sit by your computer...<br>
Unfortunately, no one can be told what Qbinux is. You have to see it for yourself.

And that toolbar is also available for windows... I believe it's a dockbar or something. And use my biggest friend: Google!!

It would take a lot of people and a lot of time to make a GUI with as many features and possibilites, but yeah, it's possible. Just to mention a few: Linux, MacOS, OS/2, Ensemble and BeOS. Someone making a "state of the art" GUI with QBasic isn't very likely, though, as QB is slow and limited in many ways. But with FB perhaps :wink:

I use a QB GUI instead of Windows on one of my computers. Why? Because Windows loads a lot of stuff I newer use anyway. If for example I were to write a short letter, I wouldn't need sound drivers, Internet Explorer (I use firefox, but IE is integrated with Windows Explorer) and a lot of other fancy stuff. I would only need a text editor and a few things to handle mouse and keyboard. So why use several hundred megabytes of diskspace on Windows just to get wordpad?

It's rare to see this many trolls, they usually shun daylight, social interaction, and persons of the feminine gender..
