Response to By "QB 1.x" you mean "QBASIC 1.x"
I used Qbasic in early 1990, before that, Atari Basic in 1985 and before that, Texas Instrument TI Basic in 1981. I moved into QuickBasic in 1995. (I bought mine just before M$ stopped licensing them.) I never went back to Qbasic because my interest was to make all my programs stand-alone exe programs.
I keep seeing some people refer to QB 1.0 and others QB 1.1. I'm not sure if both exist or not. That is why I refer to them as 1x. It is similar to a Windows 9x reference, which stands for any of the 95-98 Windows o-poor-rating systems.
Other than Word, I think QuickBasic is the only other M$ product I can truthfully say I like. .Net, .hate it. Assembly just makes my head hurt. I've got your push this right here! I kind of like Perl, so I should look into C someday; but I will stick with QuickBasic so long as it works on the PC.
P.S. If it makes you feel any better; you can make a reply to this post in 2050. I figure by then, you'll be a senior executive for IBM, Google, or Linux, and I'll be the one in diapers!
