heh, so much information in the video....

I wonder what kind of IDE they are using... I really like Visual Studio so if you can just use realbasic in VS just like VB, then I might be interested.

Sucks - I was totally sold on that, until I saw the price. 75 for the personal edition, 400 for the professional edition. Plus 500 for support. I love the idea of object-oriented programming and the cross-platform compiler is a killer feature, but 75 to develop software for an extra 0.6% of the market with Linux (who basically aren't a market anyway) and some 8% with MacOS really doesn't seem worth it, not when MS give away all their Express packages for nothing.

I'll be sticking with the MSDN Sub, methinks.

Count in bugs as well. Visual Studio 2005/8 is a proven technology, and excellent Express editions are free.
