Hullo there. I only just came back to PureBasic after a very long hiatus so I’m not sure what to make of this...
This guy posted about his PureBasic vlog a while back:
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=74324&hilit=%E2%80%9CPure+programming%E2%80%9D
He now appears to be selling PureBasic:

https://pure-programming.com/

There is a shop link in the menu.
Is it genuine? Seems odd somehow. Maybe it links back to here, I didn’t really want to click it.

Interesting shop link. Maybe Fred has an affiliate thing going that we don't know about? Otherwise, he could be selling pirate copies.

If it’s just a fansite/channel he’s putting a heck of a lot of effort into it. The videos and the site are really slick, far more than the official one, if I may say so.

I just realised it was that French guy from YouTube (I didn't click your first link). I then started the "Buy" process to see what happens, and it took me to PayPal for 79 Euros, which is where I stopped and canceled the order. I have no idea if that pays Fred or not.

I sent a PM to Fred earlier today to alert him to this in case he doesn't read this thread.

I've watched all of Guillaume's videos and they are all well made. He is also a member of the forum since January.

viewtopic.php?p=546986#p546986

I would be surprised if Fred is unaware of it.

Andy

My apologies to everyone concerned if this is a misunderstanding. But don’t people usually list their authorised resellers? And also why not just link to fantaisie software?

Fred,
Do you need distributors?

It's a trial for now, we will see later if it goes somewhere.
