BASIC turns 40

Recently I have remembered the old days of computing. In the 1980’s and early 1990’s during my primary and early secondary school years I recall using the early IBM, Amiga, and Atari computers, playing snake (I still play snake on the phone) and writing simple programs using BASIC. Well, today I searched google for BASIC and it turns out on 1 May the BASIC computing language celebrated its 40th anniversary!

Does anyone else remember BASIC?
