NewsInterview with PowerBASIC founder Bob Zale PinstaffTerrence Dorsey5-Dec-12 12:29 
Software that is commonly overlooked though essential is video or printer drivers (or other hardware). You may not realize that some of this software is written using PowerBASIC. There’s a good reason why this is the case. Programming languages have changed a lot since the old days when compiler makers were noted for counting CPU cycles and benchmarking them for speed. Today many programming languages produce resource hungry applications that end users often complain are slow and/or bloated. The people at PowerBASIC never lost that love of counting CPU cycles and benchmarking their compilers and are experts with Intel/AMD CPU machine language. This mindset, plus a reputation for rock solid compilers, has produced a current generation of compilers for Windows. If you want fast, reliable software with an amazingly small footprint, PowerBASIC is worth a look.
Rest in Peace, Bob. GOTO Heaven.
