This "feature" doesn't really work very well!

Compatibility with HTBasic

I have hundreds of programs in HTBasic and non will port over.

Really hard to download

Windows always shuts me down. I've tried more that 10 times and all have failed.
So why did I spend $500+?

Linux version

In the 1990s I had the pleasure of using True BASIC 3.x on a Hewlett-Packard HP-UX workstation, even before Linux became popular. Now that I've migrated to almost exclusive use of Linux, I'd like to see a version of True BASIC for the Linux platform. Most of my programming is number crunching and text file manipulation, and I have little need for GUI programming; all I would need is an updated version of True BASIC 3.x that can handle Unicode and long file names, so I wouldn't have to run True BASIC for DOS in DOSBox. The Unix version of the True BASIC 3 compiler didn't have the integrated development environment of the DOS and Apple versions, but it was still quite useful.

Linux Version Yes

I too would like to see a Linux native TrueBASIC application for debian|ubuntu (Mint); although, TB 6007 runs quite well ( so far ) in Wine-3.0 with only a minor DLL fix (MFC42u.DLL); winetricks can be used to get around the error.

Legacy TB runs well on DOS in a BOX; so there are two Linux solutions that are quite workable-- just would be nice to have a native application as well perhaps a freedom legacy by open-sourcing (GPLv3) TrueBASIC. Change the payment method to donation over a wider range of audience and at the same time bring BASIC back to the ubiquitous position it had years ago, but in a form and method(s) compatible with the original authors!

Thank you for TrueBASIC; powerful, simple, elegant.

iPad Development

I would like the iOS version to be worked on first no matter what. I use my iPad for schoolwork, and schoolwork ALWAYS comes before anything else, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

Hand held devices

[removed by author as no longer relevant]

Universal Apps

As I understand it windows desktop for 10.0 will not run Win32 applications on 7" tablets like you can with 8.1. Only a universal app will work on PC's, 7" tablets and windows phones since they will not have the desktop. If you already have desktop on a 7" tablet you will be able to keep that when upgrading to 10.0. My concern is that Visual Studio will be the only software that can create a "Universal App" running across all windows devices. Will it be possible in the future to create a truebasic application on a 7" tablet without the desktop?

Windows Version

Adding touch screen capability for Windows Tablets would be nice. Also, continued improvement of FORMS would be good.


true basic for android
