I removed my post that may have been over the line.

I hope they get it done quicker, being a team and everything.

If they were to release a 10.05 free update addressing issuses discovered since Bob died, it would be a huge boost to Drake's credibility.

PB actually gives me hope that BASIC is still alive. If you have users believing PowerBASIC has a future, projects like O2 that are actively supported have a chance at restoring interest in language. I don't think people look at BASIC and see COBOL. (yet)

PowerBASIC is like Frank Sinatra and Oxygen Basic is like Elton John.

Nice to see the JRS forum alive again with the help of recent interest in O2. For awhile there, I thought JRS died with Bob.
