I think you should have a nice modern 4gl. To be
compared to VB or delphi. Hell you could even use
Object Pascal which is an open standard. And that way
you could leech into the pascal community. Or else
maybe use the basic languange. Anyway make it that
way you don't ask people to learn a totally new
BTW: Make a good framework for it so anyone can
make a nice utility or game.
And I'll bet in the shortest time you will have 100's of
freeware appz to run on OpenBe.
