(Back in the "dark ages" of the 70s or so, kids learned BASIC on Commodore

 Unfortunately, the "easy" BASIC of those days is gone now, and its
modern descendants require the user to create "visual" inputs and outputs
and work in GUI environments.  Phooey!

Just my 2¢ --doug

I think that it is not true for ooBasic.
I have a friend that never had contact with computer programming. At end of
last year I told him about how to create new functions in Calc not entering
in details, just telling this as curiousity.
Now he is able to create complex functions in basic by himself.
By the way, in last 6 months I spent no more than 1 day teaching him.
