RE: the way it mixes new technology with the old is ridiculousby Galleon (no login)
Which parts about it are ridiculous?
I don't believe version of QB64 neutered of modern functionality would appeal to a very wide user-base at all, and if that is their fancy they can simply not use any of the newer features and that's exactly what they'll get. QB64 is already far more than only an emulator of code from the past.
I'm glad you're enjoying using FreeBasic.
