I just spent a day creating a form in PowerBASIC that would have taken me about 30 minutes in VB6. I've got about 30 task like that to do which makes this about a six month project. Of course, most of that time was figuring out the strange way PB works with controls. Then I'll have a whole lot of other things left to do before I can publish it. The good news is the end result should be small and fast. That's one thing PB does do well. Installation will be... download the file... run the file.
