Here is a link you may find useful regarding Basic and QBasic:
http://www.fys.ruu.nl/~bergmann/history.html

BASIC was developed at Dartmouth College in 1964 under the directory of J. Kemeny and T. Kurtz.
Bill Gates and Paul Allen eventually ported BASIC to different platforms - Microsoft eventually designed QuickBasic (QBasic) in the late 70's early 80's.

Regards,
Grant.

QBasic, as I know was developed for PC compatible comuters... there was no one PC in late 70's - early 80's...
Yes, there was previous versions of Basic - GW Basic, MSX-Basc etc...
The question was about QBaic as I remember? :))

Sincerely yours,
Crin
