I gave up MS years ago and do all my JB/LB stuff under Wine/Linux. Apart from odd things like different fonts I have no real problems...

Hi Hacker,
There is no native Linux version of Just BASIC that I'm aware of, and I've been lurking here for quite a while. As for your main question of "Does Just BASIC work using Wine in Linux?"

ABSOLUTELY!

I have Just BASIC (and LibertyBASIC) running on my Linux system at home and have had no issues. In fact, I have my source code in a folder on Dropbox and can access it from my Just BASIC instance in Wine!

In case you're wondering, my preferred Linux distribution is Linux Mint 18.1. As much as I'd like to see a native Linux version of Just BASIC... I don't stress about it since Wine gives me the opportunity to program with Just BASIC in Linux "just fine". grin

Hi tenochtitlanuk ( John F)

Yes! I gave up on MS as well smiley Although V.7 was maybe the Best! Great that it works using Linux/Wine!

Hi thejoecole

More good News! Just to let you know my favourite Linux which I have been using for more than (10) Years!

Is Lubuntu Because it's Super Fast! Low on RAM usage and Never Crashes! smiley plus the most like Windows XP (GUI)

And the latest Versions are the absolute best!!
