No more fights about FB verses QB.
Use what you like. That is what matters.
I like the direction the -lang qb dialect in FB is going in currently. This last version fixed at least one incompatibility that had stood out earlier (the extra space after PRINTing numbers).
It seems clear that both QB64 and FB's qb dialect will continue to improve. I am guessing that if there has been a calming of the FB/QB debate, it is probably tied quite a bit to QB64 and -lang qb improvement. QB64 has drawn the attention of QB people away from FB and to something that will most likely fill their needs better. QB64 is becoming what many would have liked FB to have been. I believe this means they are less interested in criticizing FB, because FB is no longer the only modern compiler claiming to fill their needs. I believe that the pessimism of the past has been replaced by optimism (or apathy...). I personally, as I mentioned, have gained optimism about both projects.
But then, I personally have very little need for either... I occasionally use FB to compile very small, but loop-intensive, programs, just for speed's sake. I currently have no practical use for QB64, but I am watching its forum closely.
P.S. My guesses about the FB-QB debate are just guesses, and might be wrong.
