Create Your Own Version of Basic

This episode of Computer Archaeology is about reverse engineering eight different versions of Microsoft BASIC 6502 (Commodore, AppleSoft etc.), reconstructing the family tree, and understanding when bugs were fixed and when new bugs, features, and 'Easter eggs' were introduced.



ViOrb automatically replaces your start button with one that looks the same as Vista's start orb so you can get the Vista feel and look for Windows XP. Just download ViOrb, extract the ViOrb OneStep executable and then double click it.
