Why a comma?

"Hello, World!" is stupid. That's not how it's said at all. (I don't mean to pick on you, it bothers me because I've seen it done that way so many times.)

I don't say it, "Hello", pause, "World!". That's like saying hi to somebody then yelling at them "world". Also, don't capitalize after a comma. Earth maybe, but not world.

Sorry to nitpick, the comma just bugs me. :-)

I use either:
CLS
PRINT "Hello world!"
SYSTEM
or
CLS
PRINT "Hello world."
SYSTEM
