The TPV (Point of Sales) program we are using in my shops, was first done with TurboBasic. Years later it was done with AMOS-Pro for Amiga, then it was re-done (or was ported, don't remember) from TurboBasic to BlitzBaic, and now, this year was re-done from scratch with PureBasic. Since the very first version, the database has been compatible within versions. I love most the AmosPro and PureBasic versions...

Basic's came with all my computers all the way back to the TRS-80. I had a Commodore with basic and a Sony with basic that had nice color capabilities. But the Basic I liked the best was Future Basic. A great community and a very responsive developer but age and system changes took its toll and I moved on the PureBasic. PureBasic out-performs all the prior Basics and also is easier to use. :D
