Yes, people still code in BASIC.
VisualBasic like BASICs for Linux and Windows are in the works. KBasic for crossplatform Windows/Linux will be out soon with MAC OS X version coming out soon after. Gambas and HBasic are open source VisualBasic like programming environments for Linux.

Are you for real? So Delphi isn't Pascal? And Free Pascal isn't Pascal either, because they provide objects oriented programming? I can code in Visual Basic without objects, but who want's to do that and spend a year coding? The same program with the use of the visual environment can be done in a week.

If you want a VB forum, there are some to that extent. Normally newer forums, imo, don't work too well, because all the experts are [either banned or] dispersed in other places round the web.
I was just making the point that people still do program in BASIC. Period.
I am not here to win one over on you, I am only seeking to help and clarify whenever possible. My draw dropped when you made the comment that VB isn't BASIC. Again, you can program without objects, even in Delphi, but why would you want to?
I recently picked up BASIC again and enjoy programming in BASIC as much as I do in any other language.
They can easily be converted. You jut don't have objects. You take away objects from VB you have noothing. No form, no textboxes, nothing. Everything with a property is an object. Everything in VB has properties. You figure it out.
