I think your comment was a broad generalisation. There's no denying the availability of BBC basic interpreters for other platforms, but you can't seriously suggest that developing even medium sized Basic applications makes sense on another platform - apart from the deficiencies of Basic, you'll need RISC OS interfaces at some point which just won't exist.

Given the therefore limited use, especially in the context of this article and subsequent thread, I think Gulli's comment is reasonable.

  • The ARM Club disbands after 18 years
    The ARM Club, which has organised shows and provided support and products to RISC OS users since 1990, has closed its doors and stopped publishing its Eureka magazine. Its committee members agreed to stop taking on new club members after membership figures went into free fall and no one was willing to help run the organisation. Archive has agreed to take on Eureka subscribers and their first issue, edition 21:11, is due to arrive in the post by Monday.
