BASIC Distinct

And another potential project for RetroChallenge… where do these all come from?

The idea: Going back to my first ever programming language (ouch, that *was* a long time ago, do you remember the RM380Z?), by porting FreeBASIC to Solaris and then porting/adjusting/improving some classic BASIC and QBASIC games so that they run on an Ultra-10 workstation (or any other aged SPARC workstation, perhaps even on the Indigo too).

How about playing the original BASIC Super Star Trek from 1978? Or perhaps Jeff Lewis’ QBASIC Tank Game?
