OSNews, Generic OSes A new version of the learning tool OS MikeOS is available, sporting a new BASIC interpreter with 24 instructions. You can run BASIC code from inside the text editor by pressing F8. See the App Developer Handbook for a guide to the BASIC dialect (somewhat similar to old 8-bit BASICs, nostalgia fans), and the User Handbook for info on running MikeOS from a USB key, floppy or CD.

"I miss line numbers and a line editor."

Originally MikeOS BASIC used line numbers, but I decided to switch it to text labels as they're more descriptive.

It wouldn't be hard for someone to implement a line editor (I wrote a simple one ages ago), but I would imagine most people coding would prefer a full-screen editor.
