The answer comes from the creator of Small Basic, Vijaye Raji...
From Anthony Yarrell... A few difference between QBasic and Small Basic:
Small Basic is small - much smaller than VB and supports just a subset of what VB.Net supports. Besides, you can actually write a compiler using VB.Net.
Another great point of SB lies in the IDE, not the language. With SB, someone of any age and experience can fire up the IDE and know exactly where everything is and how to do anything because of the simple, clear layout while if the same beginner were to open Visual Studio to write VB code, it would be overwhelming
Got any other explanations as to how Small Basic is different from QBASIC and VB.NET? Is there anything else we should compare/contrast it to? Leave a comment with your answers!
