    Have you tryed a 'google' with string combinations like 'basic linux' etc.

    I can remember doing that not to long ago for qbasic i think. I quite like that basic. Anyhow, google came up with a qbasic IDE for linux. I didn't follow it through though so i carn't really say much about it.

    Don't mean anything negative here but,
    why do 'vb' when you can have 'C'.

    Just noticed the July dates on the posts above. I'm a bit late

    C can be a bit harsh to people who just want to test out some programming languages, as they often prefer *basic. Also, I think that big_k works as a VB programmer so maybe it would be very handy?

    Have you tried Gambas Shrine?
    It's more or less like VB.
