Here a 32bit ARM machine turned into a 80s style Basic Computer.
(480MHz, 800x600 VGA up to 65536 colours, does 260000 lines Basic per second)
(130€ on polish webshop)
And here a more modern Basic Compiler.
Runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS (and Amiga).
(License cost 79€)
By the time I get more and more the idea that this two alternatives make much more sense to people who just want to start again with Basic programming.
And that much cheaper than a Mega65 will ever be.
Also both Bascis are so much more powerful than the Basic V10 for Mega65, faster and almost without limitations compared to all old 8bit Basics.
People who like the limitations of 8 bit machines are what the Mega65 is for.
Or the Spectrum Next or the MiSTer with all the emulated old 8 bit machines.
I like the whole engeniering and the ideas to extend the 8bit CPU that powers the Mega65. The CPU extensions, the memory map and how to use the memory above 64k.
But I think by far the most fun and enjoyment have the developers of the Mega65. A really huge project that impresses very much people, also me.
The BBC Basic is just another fascinating Basic from the 80s.
Not less and not more.
just my point of view.
