Big interview with Frederic Laboureur released

"Surprise!" - yes, after a long time I have done a new interview with Fred. And this has become really huge (around 80 Q & A!), in which Fred tell us more about himself, but above all about the history, current situation and future development of PureBasic. I was able to elicit some things from him, which will be included in the forthcoming (as beta) version 5.10...

I enjoyed reading the interview. Thanks to Fred and André for putting it together. :)

I'm definitely looking forward to the "Granted wishes release".

Thanks Enjoyed.

Totally surprised only 8,000 registered users for such a great programming language and forum support it should be (1F40*10) = :D

Zebuddi. :D

Excellent interview, thank you Andre and Fred.

Great to see that the PB devs look into LLVM.
If PB would emit LLVM-IR then the language would be on the radar of more programmers.
And with that - hopefully - bring more money to the dev team...
(besides all the compiled executable optimizations that come with it...)

So 8000 paid users (+ more pirated) at $79 euros = more than half a million euros! Not bad, dude! :)

And multi-line commands coming for the next release... FINALLY! :D

....huge interview Andre, I got through a whole cup of coffee reading it! Fred, you are very humble about PB, it's a truly great achievement, I would be very proud to have made a product that good. I liked PB from the moment I saw it and I wish I had found it sooner. Hope the whole PB team have a wonderful Christmas holiday.

Thanks Fred and Andre. Truly insightful.

And thank you Fred, for the upcoming Granted Wishes Release. The line-continuation feature alone will make it a very Merry Christmas, and an even Happier New Year!

With the amount of time and effort Fred has put into PB, I am supprised he still has his hair, not to mention he also has to pay staff and a lot of other overheads too, work that out over 10 years, very modest return really.

Bill Gates, has made billions, boy he must have been working 10,000 hours a day. :lol:
