Both wrote some tripe that I am not going to respond to.
It seems the neither are working in the software industry.
Since 2007, I have been a software engineer working at the Advanced
Engineering Center at Ford. I write software for engineers. It seems
that the hateful people in this group, want to disparage Michigan. I
have seen good people at Ford lose there jobs due to this economy.
People who did not cause the problems in the economy. So, make fun of
ME all you want, but you lower yourself a notch, when you attack
others without cause.
That said, I still use PowerBasic for one thing and one thing only. To
create DLLs. No, I do not have stock or other financial benefits from
RealBasic, PureBasic or KBasic. But I do use them. So, it seems I am
one of the few people who can comment on PowerBasic compared to other
versions of Basic.
I am convinced that neither Auric__ or Hutch make any money in the
software industry nor can they accept my challenge.
With respect to the torrent.
Clearly Hutch did not bother to download the PowerBasic torrent. Had
he, he would have verified that there are no viruses in the PowerBaisc
downloads. As such, Hutch clearly is LYING.
Which brings us to an interesting idea. Examining the PowerBasic
license, I notice that anyone could set-up a web site with the
compiler. Such that any user could submit a text file with the
PowerBaisc keywords, and the web site would email the person back an
EXE or DLL.
There is no legal restriction placed such that a user is prohibited
from selling a service where that sellers offers to compile a user's
code. With a website, a legal buyer of PowerBasic could offer to
compile code for others via an automated website.
If PowerBasic is any good, users who have been kicked out by
BobTheSnob, would be willing to pay a fee for complication services.
If PowerBasic is dead, no one would be interested. By offering the
service FREE for a while, users could set the price! This would also
fill the need for a Demo of PowerBasic - a try before you buy.
Let's make that the challenge.
P.S. I command you to insult me more.
