I would like to see SmallBASIC be available in Raspbian Repository also. I've tried BBC Basic (too old), TinyBasic (too tiny), BASIC256 (Rough around the edges). I'd like to see Small BASIC next.chrisws wrote:
I hope someone will make SmallBASIC available in RaspbianRepository, it should be trivial since the debianisation work is already done.
Regarding MS Small Basic, I believe there is a .net library for Linux. So, it is possible. But MS Small Basic is still too buggy for formal classroom work, IMHO. I much prefer Processing. I'll have to try it with the new JavaVM from Oracle. And as far as BASIC programming goes, I much prefer Nintendo DSi PetitComputer.
