Anyway, you couldn't really do any serious applications with gwbasic. It was followed by qbasic a little later.
I was in time to get to do both. Still have the original GWBASIC manuals!
I just did a little with both. But this was around the same time that Borland released Turbo Pascal and at least in my view it became the serious language to make PC applications with in that era. It was almost instant compilation and it had a very good IDE.
