BBC BASIC for Windows is 15 years old. After about 18 months of development, BB4W version 1.00a was released on 1st October 2001. The free online upgrade facility will still recognise that version and update it to v6.02a!
Hi there Richard, So glad to see you are still trundling along! I did join your 'company' way back (2005?) to keep my hand in and to solve Sudoku puzzles when they first came to my attention, but other matters intervened. I still have a note of my Serial No: 116-2183-659 if that makes sense, as I intended to pass on some ecological software I wrote when teaching (1985 - 90 or so), but I suppose there may not be much interest in that aspect now. However, am delighted to see you've expanded into other OS - I'm not really sure I see the point of all these other languages when BBC is so versatile! I still have some BBC bits and pieces, and ever wishful, hope to exercise the old brain again - sometime! With my best wishes for BBC4W, Jim K (aka Geum)
