If we start picking out QB stuff that we never use or no longer NEED, then we would all have different lists. QB64 needs to support older code because ANYBODY should be able to compile. Even non-programmers.
How many times have people asked how to get an old program running on Vista?
CHAIN also makes moving between modules seamless with no screen interruptions.
For that matter, who needs legacy screen modes. Make Screen 12 have pages too! Allow graphics in Screen 0. How long will monitors even support legacy?
