Re: You both are comparing apples to oranges. FB is obviously more advanced.by Laanan Fisher (no login)
As has been stated too many times before, FB will never be able to compile every existing QB program, since nobody there cares about emulating anything. Now that QB64 is at the place it's at, I think FB should remove the "qb" dialect entirely.
> FB is NOT 100% compatable and if I wanted to learn it, I might as well learn C coding in the first place!
FB is as much like C as QB is; it provides some built-in functionality (like the mouse, threading, image creation, etc.), but it also allows you to link with code written in other languages. QB64 adds just as much "gaming" functionality as FB, and it also adds audio stuff, so one could say that it has moved even further into gaming than FB.
> FB went in many different directions
What directions are these ?
> QB64 can only get better, where FB stopped at gaming.
Explain yourself. How can QB64 get better, and how has FB stopped getting better ? Galleon says he plans on supporting linking against external libraries as well, so will you be hating QB64 when this happens ?
