Yep!
3) Maybe the last thing I stated was a misconception. It is not that Microsoft has the "hardware info" before Linux does;
but anyway Windows has always those drivers for newest hardware included in system disk or system hard drive, Linux is getting them few months later, either way result is same.

I have LB 4.04 Pro. But, I no longer use Windows. I've been waiting for the LINUX version for a long time. I use LINUX Mint or Ubuntu most of the time. As soon as you come up with a working version for LINUX I would like to know about it. Eventually I want to be cross platform so I can share programs with people who use Windows. I currently use Wine to run LB, but it has a few quirks. I will probably never have a MAC computer, but it would be nice if I could still compile MAC versions of my programs for MAC users. That might be asking too much.

The only suggestion I have is a built in option for word wrap in text editor objects. I hate playing with API's. Other than this option, LB 4.04 has pretty much everything I want in a BASIC language except a native LINUX version. I can live without the word wrap option as long as it has the ability to do it through API or something similar in LINUX.

I believe a LINUX version of LB would be the best thing that ever happened to LINUX. People would be able to easily create powerful applications and I'm sure many would find their way into some of the repositories.

I'm ready to purchase a LINUX version any time.

A 'native Linux version' would be nice.

BUT
I do all my LB programming under Wine on Linux. ( 'Li-Li Land'??) It is the easiest way for me to program applications with a GUI interface. Only encounter MS when sorting friends' machines with Windows of various versions....

What are the inconveniences/quirks that you find with LB under Wine? Apart from pathname and fontname differences I've met very few problems. But then I don't distribute the compiled exe versions to others, although they work fine on my machine.

(My experience over decades is that MOST programming tasks can be achieved with MOST programming languages on MOST hardware. Although not always by me!)

Please have a look at NSBASIC if you want to program in BASIC for Android or IOS.

Pretty easy to use and have a rich set of libraries.

LB simplicity for mobile programming.
