Name change - Umm, to what end ?
Not our call anyway and Fred has already stated he's happy as is.
I'm more curious for the reasoning though. The sticking point seems to be with the word "BASIC" and it's public/peer stigma.
I think many of us know an arsenal of languages from which we pick. I don't think any less of a programmer should he choose VB or greater for using C++.
The skill is knowing enough of each language to make the best choice for a project.
I agree to some extent product name is important particularly when starting up. However, PB has been going long enough that it's now judged by it's performance regardless of name.

Only the ignorant would discard anything just by it's name. Yep I know a few ignorants too .....

For those of you who don't wish to disclose the Basic nature of your products: if a user asks what language your product was made with, just reply with "it's assembler code compiled with Fasm". This answer is 100% true. ;)
