    I find this really good is a lot quicker than visual basics and yeah its not the same but it is very similar. The only problem I find is trying to find codes, I know there's good examples but of course they don't cover everything. Like I was trying to find code to get stock quotes but I couldn't find anything through my Internet searches hopefully one day some one will do like gambas version of which may make it a lot easier to find codes

    I love how simple it is to make and deploy small apps with Gambas. Highly recommended for anyone who's new to development!

    Nice rapid development environment. Used to code a ton of vb when I used windows years ago and have been looking for a way to get back into coding for my desktop in Linux. Easy to get started and decent documentation and examples. So far everything I have looked for is there.

    Fantastic! Wrote a lot of VBA-Code over 15 years, primary with MS Access. After short time I merged the data to Postgresql because of vendor lockin (and Access mdb databases where really bad/unstable). But the last thing to do was creating a frontend similar to what was able with Access before ... forms, business logic and such things. That was really a problem, I tried Python with PyQT/WX, Java/Groovy, PHP and Freepascal with Lazarus and I searched a replacement for a really long time. Now, that I programmed for about two days with Gambas, I see, I am at home now. Whoever programmed VBA/VB will understand Gambas with ease. The BASIC language is clear, the IDE is very cool, with a nice editor. All together it seems to be very stable, I will report when I wrote my first 40000 LOC. For me it is a perfect replacement for MS Access, it has all the things, which make Access a good frontend for Postgresql, and it lacks all the crazy features of Access, which I always circumvented by VBA-Code. If one wants a replacement for Visual Basic for Applications in Linux: Here it is! Thank you! Great work! ** Me again, one year later and with about 20000 lines of code written. Gambas is great! A lot of the code is productive in our firm, development speed increases because of more experience and a couple of tools and libs written. This object-oriented Basic is really the best solution for our need for a good RAD environment.
