Since I'm on either XP or Ubuntu nowdays, so fB is the most suitable for me.

I tend to prefer making my programs QB-compatible, so I develop using QB and then test in FB. I only encounter minor differences, so it's not really a problem. I'm a pure console programmer right now. Smiley

Edit: Forgot to mention that I'm in the process of learning C++ right now.

I try to make my FB code QB compatible, but I don't even test it with QB anymore.

I think so too, macric! I love programming using QB! If I'm going to tackle bigger projects I usually use VB but QB is still my favorite programming language.  :bounce: I always enjoy the nostalgia of QB... Smiley

@macric:
ARGH that was hard to read on subOracle.


Yes it's true that occasionaly people tell newbies that FB is easier for what they are trying to accomplish. But nothing like PRINT =P
It's more stuff like loading bmps or internet programming.

but i have downloaded FB (just in case), maybe someday somebody in tne next century will make an IDE for DOS for the FB with the HELP in-line just like in Quickbasics
that's VERY easy for them but they prefer own ideas, nobody can padlock another's individuals heads
the Dos IDE could be one of the 1st steps but the experts prefer to idolize the Windows environment
today i keep myself thinking that FB it's another of the dozens of Visual Basics but a little more friendly with the Quickbasics than the others
but i have MUCH patience, i will be waiting someday FB experts will not despise the Quickbasics
since experts began FB i have seen dissapeared Quickbasics programmers from the forums, most didn't emigrate to FB, just they felt tired of the answers of FB fans, like these
question: "How do i make a PRINT?"
answer: "Use FB or you would never could be a human being"
question: "How do i load a library?"
answer: "If you use FB you would never have a problem, that's smart"
...etcetera, etcetera...
then most programmers ran away
Annoying color..

I think you need to learn what VB really is, and how much it is not FB.

The FB experts are also QB experts, they have a right to diss QB if they feel like it. I dont like QB anymore, I used to. It's once again called progress..

What forums are you refering to? It can't be this one.. (reson: http://forum.qbasicnews.com/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1558 )
Besides, any recent leave of people from the forum is most likely due to the death of it. (And later rebirth) Not FB..


Ignoring your ignorace.. FB is better.. get over it.. or stop whining.. you want to use QB, fine.. dont get mad when people suggest a superior product to your questions then..

Besides, a good programmer shouldnt be bound by an IDE
Or do you plan on coding in QB for the rest of your life? Never moving forward?
